Description

The cello sonatas of Beethoven must be familiar to any lover of the instrument. But many people see these works as the logical product of a creative artist: first comes the inspiration, and then hard work takes care of the rest. So why are there no cello sonatas by Haydn or Mozart, for example? There seems to be no obvious answer, but therein lies the clue. The classical sonata, incorporating a genuine dialogue of instruments, had not yet achieved its definitive form by 1800. For the most part, the general public is full of praise for Beethoven’s symphonies, concerti, and quartets, but they forget that he was also virtually the first composer to produce a classical cello sonata….

Press reviews

CD review

(…) incomparable performance (…) (…) and the marvellously relaxed finale has just the right amount of lift in the Hungarian rhythms.

CD Review

(…) When it comes to the great Schubert Quintet, many are called but few are chosen. Knowing the work of the Orpheus Quartet, I approached this recording with keen anticipation and wasn’t disappointed. (…)

Basler Zeitung

Wer etwa noch meint, das spiel auf alten Instrumenten sei eine dröge Sache, höre sich diese gleichen Variationen an. (…)

Kunst en Kultuur

Pieter Wispelwey is een schitterend cellist. (…) (…) Zijn nieuwste cd bevestigt zijn onvergelijkelijk talent (…)

Gramophone

(…) but this recital of Beethoven variations teems with fresh insights in the irresistible serendipity of its playing (…)

Südwestpresse

(…) großartigen Momenten von Klangverschmelzungen, die so auf modernen Instrumenten eben nicht mehr möglich sind. (…)

In Tune

(…) Apart from enjoying the exceptional musicality of these performances, one is struck by the growth in Beethoven’s style, almost variation by variation (…) (…) Both players blend in to a beautiful unity(…) (…) Channel’s sonics are marvelous, and the jacket notes brim with useful insights, in English, Dutch, German and French. A great recording! Highest recommendation.(…)

Le Monde de la Musique

(…) … un savoureux programme de variations (…)

FonoForum

(…) Inspirierter und zwingender kann man diese Musik kaum spielen.

Le Provençal

(…) Rien de figé, tout y est plein de vie.

La Marseillaise

(…) une très belle version des Variations de Ludwig. Un disque conseillé.

Discophage

(…) La qualité des timbres et le naturel sont parfaits.

Herald Sun

(…) The talking between this two is engrossingly fluent. (…)

Northern Echo

(…) These are most enjoyable performances that have a ring of authority and authenticity about them and are beautifully played.

Répertoire

(…) L’enregistrement est d’autant plus intéressant qu’il n’existe apparemment aucun autre version de ces oeuvres sur instruments ancien.

Klassiek

(…) weer een cd om trots op te zijn (…)
