ANAM Recital: Nicholas McManus (cello)


ANAM Recitals enable each musician to make their own personal musical statement, through performance, repertoire and presentation.

Three charming character pieces bookended by two solemn and brooding works.

JS Bach's Suite and Fuchs' Sonata will set the mood for this recital - a display of grave and monumental composition. Offering relief from these intense works is an assortment of three short pieces; a short song about Spring, a dance of gnomes, and the flight of a butterfly.

JS BACH Cello Suite no. 2 in D minor BWV1008
MENDELSSOHN Spring Song from Lieder ohne Worte op. 62 no. 2
DAVID POPPER Gnomentanz from Im Walde Suite op. 50
FAURÉ Papillon op. 77
ROBERT FUCHS Cello Sonata no. 2 op. 83

Nicholas McManus NSW cello
Louisa Breen piano
