On this release brothers Håvard and Øyvind Gimse choose to focus on the master Chopin and one of his dearest pupils, Norwegian composer and pianist Thomas Tellefsen. The relationship between the master and his student was successful musically as well as personally, and on this record the mutual influence can be tracked throughout the two composers sonatas for cello and piano. Tellefsen had throughout his work a predilection for classical form principles and relatively conservative harmony, a predilection shared by Chopin. Øyvind and Håvard Gimse are two highly revered performers on their respective instruments, and on this release they manage to bond the two composers works into a unit that’s a testament both to their own interplay and the composers interaction
