A particular highlight of this new release are NEW ARRANGEMENTS by cellist/ director Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt of “Valse Sentimentale” — recorded for the FIRST TIME for cello and string orchestra. The Ensemble Metamorphosen Berlin is a merger of outstanding chamber musicians and young international awardees of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and others.
