CDA 1686-2 Flotow / Offenbach - Works for Piano and Cello
Throughout this time Friedrich von Flotow was giving piano lessons as well as performing as a pianist in the Paris salons. In 1838 he met a seven year younger penniless cellist of
exceptional talent named Jacob Eberscht, a jewish cantor's son from Cologne, which although admitted to the Paris Conservatorie, could not continue his studies due to the lack of funds.
Flotow promised that he would secure Eberscht access to the salons and offered him to collaborate with him. Intruduced in this way, Eberscht became well-known, and soon - now under the name of Jacques Offenbach - he gained great fame.
