Cellist Brian Thornton and pianist Spencer Myer have a long history of performing together, going all the way back to 2005. Myer was a finalist in the Cleveland International Piano Competition and performed with the Cleveland Orchestra, where Thornton is a member of the cello section. The two stayed in touch and Thornton even reached out to Myer when he started the Lev Aronson Cello Festival in 2012. Now, the two have collaborated on their third album for the Steinway label, focusing on the works for cello and piano by Robert Schumann.
