Release Date:09/06/2013;Notes:The cello has always been held in high esteem for it's warm, noble timbre and range of expression. So it is no wonder that numerous solo pieces have been written for the instrument. In this recording, the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, together with the great Benjamin Britten at the piano, have left the accustomed pathway to perform three less well-known - but nevertheless excellent - works from the 19th and 20th century._x000B_Robert Schumann's F-ünf St-ücke i'm Volkston allows the cellist to bring out the whole beauty of his instrument. Well-paced tempi, a crystal-clear tone, and an exquisitely precise piano part emphasize the unique character of this music - a work which points the way towards modern times._x000B_The mysterious tonal and harmonic world of the Impressionists is evoked by Debussy's Sonata for Piano and Cello. Written in the aftermath of the First World War, it reflects human tragedy and a feeling of oppression and anxiety._x000B_Britten's Cello Sonata was tailormade for Rostropovich and dedicated to the great cellist. The two musicians, both of them technical perfectionists, provide an inspired performance - beginning with the thrilling dialogue of the very first bars, via a lyrical elegy, right up to the gripping Finale in 6/8 time. To sum it up: top marks for music, tonal quality and choice of repertoire..;Special Attributes:180 GRAM VINYL
