In 2012, the Finnish-Dutch cellist Jonathan Roozeman was a second prize winner at the National Cello Competition at only 16 years old. His programme, consisting of arrangements almost exclusively, starts with the only original work, written for cello and piano. Sibelius composed La Malinconia in 1900, shortly after losing his daughter to an epidemic.
The renowned cellist Gregor Piatigorsky transformed Haydn’s Baryton Trio to a Divertimento in the ‘old romantic style’.
Dobrinka Tabakova’s Pirin, a piece full of original Bulgarian intonations, rhythms, and melodies, was originally composed for viola solo.
