VC Artist Cellist Pablo Ferrández's New Album, "Night Sessions Vol. 2"

Released on Sony Classical, the album features works by Saint-Saëns, Elgar, Schubert, and Glazunov, with each track connected to a personal memory

VC Artist and Spanish Cellist Pablo Ferrández has released his newest album, Night Sessions Vol. 2, on Sony Classical. Each track on the album is closely related to a personal memory of Pablo's. Opening with Edward Elgar's Salut d'Amour, the melody connects Pablo to his infancy where he heard Salut d'Amour every evening with his mother. "I recorded this song for her," he shared.

The album also includes Alexander Glazunov's Chant du ménestrel, Op. 71 which Pablo performed in the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow during his teenage years. Additional works include Saint-Saëns’ "The Swan," and an arrangement of Schumann’s "Du bist wie eine Blume."

Night Sessions Vol. 2 aims "to bring listeners with me into these pictures of my life," shared Pablo.

All four tracks on the album are in collaboration with French pianist Julien Quentin, who continues to explore new artistic visions and collaborations with artists.
