Schubert Introduction Theme and Variations, Op.82, #2 Arranged by Piatigorsky
Brinton Averil Smith, cellist and Evelyn Chen, pianist. Schubert's Introduction, Theme and Variations, Op.82, #2 in an arrangement for 'cello and piano by Gregor Piatigorsky. From a concert on 12/3/07.
Piatigorsky's own incomparable version of this work is seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P... and I don't think anyone could ever capture the elegance and humor as well as he did, but it is still a charming and beautiful arrangement that should be played more often. I programed it to force myself to learn a better staccato!
