Vocalise Op.34 No.14.

‘The enchanting high point was Rachmaninov’s Sonata, where the cellist’s tone carefully unfolded like a flower in the introduction, and then with vigorous articulation and a passionate singing tone shaped the rhapsodic drama of the work. There was a standing ovation in the packed Church of St Luke for this debut in Lucerne.’ (Neue Luzerner Zeitung/Lucerne Festival 2011)
‘Elschenbroich’s sound had a burnished glow and radiated authority’ Michael Church, The Independent
