Before you, the Alpine landscape stretches wide. Under a clear sky, a breeze sighs through the leaves. But suddenly, a storm blows over the mountains and a force of nature erupts: the world-famous overture from Gioachino Rossino's Guillaume Tell. Also, the cellists of the Residentie Orkest take you to various Spanish regions, each of which has something to say about love in its own way in 6 Canciones populares Españolas.

Stormy love gives way to a tribute to a deceased friend. Bohemian cellist David Popper's Requiem. His work brings out the unique sound and style of the instrument like no other. Thus the soul lives on in the mournful but breathtaking strokes of the bow in this piece.
