Chopin composed several works for cello, influenced by his friend the famous cellist Auguste Franchomme, the Grand Duo Concertant, an opera paraphrase on Meyerbeer’s “Robert le Diable, ” is among them. Franchomme personally participated in the elaboration of the cello part. The early Polonaise op. 3 with slow introduction was written by Chopin for the cello-playing Polish Prince Radziwill;. Chopin cleverly underlays the cantabile melodies of the cello with fireworks of pianistic brilliance. A dazzling, energy-laden early masterpiece !
