Cybele Records has announced the release of cellist Cécile Grüebler's new CD: 'Hindemith, Heiden and Skolnik Works For Cello and Piano'


Cybele Records has announced the release of Swiss cellist Cécile Grüebler‘s new CD: Hindemith, Heiden and Skolnik Works For Cello and Piano.

Recorded with pianist Tamara Chitadze, the disc features Paul Hindemith’s Drei Stücke Op. 8, American-German composer Bernhard Heiden’s (1910 – 2000) Siena Cello Sonata and American composer Walter Skolnik’s (b. 1934) Four Bagatelles Sonata.

“This CD is based on a very personal and unique story … everything began in New York in 2017, when the composer Walter Skolnik and I met by chance on the street …” Cécile has told The Violin Channel.

“I felt deeply inspired by the music and stories of the then 84-year-old composer … who, through his most important teacher Bernhard Heiden follows the traditions of his teacher … Paul Hindemith …” she has said.

“By the time I returned back home to Switzerland from that fateful trip, I had a fully-formed idea for this project … I hope people can feel the enthusiasm … and be equally surprised by the truly touching music.”
