This morning I caught one of my FAVORITE cello pieces on KMFA. Now this is the most lovely piece of music I've heard in years.
Charles Gounod: Ave Maria (Meditation on Bach Prelude)
Mischa Maisky, cello
Pavel Gililov, piano
Of course, I dug up a similar recording on youtube to share here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn9qAjIgCek
Thanks to those performers! It feels like we're right there in the studio with them. I miss the tangibility of live sessions.
I also HIGHLY recommend a purchase of the cd above for Mr. Maisky's amazing abilities on the cello. The quality of his performance is simply above my comment.
