Description: We offer this for the 45 minutes of rare arrangments (Glazunov's may have been influenced by his friendship with the cellist Carl Davidov) and for the original version of the Introduction and Polonaise without the many later accretions by 19th and 20th century soloists. Antony Cooke (cello), Armin Watkins (piano).
