Lidy Blijdorp Cello

RCD1049
April 2020

Dutch cellist Lidy Blijdorp has long been in love with the music of Ravel, the magical sound world, the colours and imagery he conjures. Ravel wrote very little for the cello, so Blijdorp made her own arrangements for cello and piano of Lever du jour(Sunrise) from Daphnes & Chloéand two movements from Rapsodie Espagnole. Award winning pianist Julien Brocal is her partner in these skilful arrangements. The delightful sonata for cello & violin and Kodaly’s great solo cello sonata round off a programme that spans music from France, French music with Spanish dance as its inspiration, and then ending the journey in Hungary with the folk infused masterwork that is Kodaly’s op.8
