About Janof's Rondo in Blue for Cello and Piano

Blues music has always held a special place in my heart, though I have never aspired to become a Blues cellist. This piece allows me to enjoy soulful Blue idioms while still retaining my identity as a Classical musician.

He is the past President of the Seattle Violoncello Society and a former cello instructor at Music Center of the Northwest.
