This is a very rare recording - and I really mean rare in both ways.

1)This recording was released only in Japan. You can't find it searching by catalog number on Philips's site and I've never seen it on any western store. But after YEARS of patient waiting I could get my hands on one.

2) Listen (recorded or live) to cellist Antonio Meneses playing is always a rare, beautiful and rewarding experience. And this recording is no exception.
