strongly recommodation

I recommand this box of Shafran to all reviewers, with some reasons,
1. This box it’s a good value of collecting the live records that Shafran performed during Russia period, in a ecomonic price.
2. It collected some important cellist compositions in it, from russia, to other european important composers. You will find Shafran he is a excellent fully cellist, not only russia cellist.
3. During this box, it’s especially outstanding on his sonatas, ex shostakovich, rachmaninov and breval. He had good cooperation with all pianoists. However, his short pieces, ex tchaikovsky, popper were also excellent too. Of couse, you would find his overall professional performance in concertos.
Finally, it’s worth purchasing to collect.

  1. Thank you for that

    Shafran is not as famous as he deserves.

    But I do not congratulate Brilliant Classics for I ignored that Shafran was left-handed. Actually, it’s the first time ever that I see a left-handed cellist. :razz:
