Following the success of Capriccioso, a solo spectacular of works written by cellists for cellists, Antonio Meneses’ dazzling virtuosity is on display again with the rarely recorded Suite for Solo Cello by the Spanish cellist-composer Gaspar Cassadó alongside two early works by his Hungarian contemporary Zoltán Kodály – the Duo for Violin and Cello, with violinist Claudio Cruz who was the conductor on Antonio’s Grammy-nominated recording of the Concertos by Elgar and Gál; and the Sonata for Solo Cello which was written in 1915 and is released in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the work.
