Franchomme was the most renowned Parisian cellist of his day, best friend
to Chopin and the dedicatee of Chopin’s final work, his cello sonata Op. 65.
This program includes three Franchomme works that have never been
performed in the USA, making it of particular interest to lovers of the cello
repertoire and Chopin aficionados, as well as important to scholars of French
Most of Franchomme's works are out of print, but I am performing many lovely unknown Franchomme pieces in concerts this autumn in New York and throughout the US (both out-of-print editions and manuscripts). Last summer I visited France on a research grant, where I met some of Franchomme's descendants and discovered fantastic out-of-print works in the Biblothèque Nationale de France, Paris.
