I've just released a new album of cello/piano recordings with pianist Joel A. Martin. We have had such a blast following our instincts with this new CD, a collection of our originals and spontaneous arrangements of some beautiful music by Dave Brubeck, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gabriel Fauré, Alexander Scriabin and more. The recording is pristine, never heard these instruments sparkle with such immediacy and beauty. Check out the clip below, "The Blonde by the Pond," and our "Friesen & Martin - Cello/Piano Duo" page on this site, also visit the Store where you can preview each new track.
Join us in New York City on Sunday, February 3rd, 2019 for a special program: we'll be debuting original duos for cello and piano along with music by Duke Ellington. Joel will be playing Duke's white Steinway grand piano restored by the Smithsonian Institute and in permanent residence at the Cathedral's St. James Chapel. For tickets check out the link below.
