Welcome to another livestream Groupmuse featuring myself on solo cello as well as cello/oboe duets with my wife, Chelsea! I'll be playing you a fantastically imaginative piece for solo cello, Benjamin Britten's first solo cello suite. Coupled with that is Reger's first suite for solo cello, a new piece for me, and full of soaring harmony and bright optimism.

I. Fuga
II. Lamento
Canto Secondo
