A young Beethoven, inspired by his favourite composer, wrote a companion piece to his two early cello sonatas. Brahms loved the golden glow and warmth of the cello, especially its deeply resonant voice with a special character of introspection. Op. 38 was the first duo sonata he allowed to be published. Tchaikovsky sings to us while Schumann, also in thrall to the sound of the cello, wrote a love song; unfolding and opening out before coming to complete stop, in peace, followed by an ecstatic outburst of happiness; Schumann showing us his most romantic face.
Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction.
