Blaise Déjardin is the principal cellist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Kee-Hyun Kim is the cellist of the Grammy-winning Parker String Quartet. Friends since their student days at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, they are partnering on this first recording project for Opus Cello. Déjardin’s transcriptions for cello duo of three works by Mozart highlight the instrument’s flexibility and extraordinary melodic range in settings alternately exuberantly athletic and broadly lyrical.
