Description: These artists have brought us etudes by Popper and Duport and now they move on to a lesser-known French cellist whose dozen studies take up about half of this 76-minute disc. The Beethoven Souvenir is a brief, nine-minute work based on the sixth movement of the Op. 8 Serenade for string trio. Martin Rummel (cello), Elizabeth Hopkins (piano).
