Description: While the reason for making this disc was certainly the cellist's suite of Bizet arrangements (which is as fun as you might think it would be), it also provides some rare repertoire from other cellist-composers, with the Tortelier pair of pieces and the two-minute Rostropovich Humoresque being the rarest. Hillel Zori (cello), Arnon Erez (piano).
