High degree of playing. Well done. Mildly disappointing you didn’t identify your cello or bow. The Romance sounds like a preliminary study for the Vocalise. I wonder if Rachmaninov knew Arensky well? The Humoreske sounds like something but I can’t place it.

Thank you, Philip. I play on an anonymous French Cello built around 1820. My bow is from a modern maker in Germany—Josef Gabriel. Regarding the Humoresque, you probably thought about Elfentanz or At the fountain, right?

No not those. Something else, maybe the Van Goens Scherzo or the Castelnuovo-Tedesco Scherzino, but I don’t think those are correct either. Regardless, it’s a splendid performance. 
I highly applaud your interest in less known music. That’s an interest of mine as well. With such an accomplished pianist partner, I think you’d both enjoy the Casella C major Sonata. What a wonderful piece that is, definitely one of the great 20-century Sonatas, and yet no one knows it. Very hard yet totally worth the work.

edit: oh! The last movement of the Miaskovsky second sonata! That’s it!
