Description: A real bargain at budget-price, offering all of Popper's works entitled "Suite" - meaning both the original version of Op. 16 and his version with piano instead of second cello. No other recording available of the ten-minute Straussian Waltz Suite and only one other of the lushly romantic suite of character pieces Im Walde. Plenty of Brahms both here and in the twice-before-recorded Op. 69 suite. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Martin Rummel, Alexander Hülshoff (cellos), Mari Kato (piano), Bertin Christelbauer (third cello).
