Anssi Karttunen is against monotony. On his Instead List for Cello, he pairs a rarely played work worth listening to with every well know piece.

“While the list of pieces that appear in cello-piano recitals is incredibly short – the same ten pieces keep circulating in different order – we cellists actually have a very large repertoire”, he says. “Orchestras don't program much more than ten concertos and apart the Bach Suites there are maybe five pieces that make their way to concert programs.”


Intelligent programmes: We look forward to exchanging ideas.
