01&nbspFelix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Sonata for Cello and Piano No 2 in D major Op 58&nbsp 02&nbspFrdric Chopin Sonata for Cello and Piano in G minor Op 65&nbsp

A powerful broad theme driven by nervous throbbing chains of semiquavers 16th notes in the piano and a vigorously bowed cello which sings out its melody with a bittersweet tone if every chambermusic work began so invitingly as Mendelssohns D major Cello Sonata then the number of fans of works for small ensemble would rapidly increase The dedicatee Count Wielhorsky an excellent amateur cellist must surely have revelled in this closelyknit work with its waft of salon air Although it is somewhat astonishing that Mendelssohns Cello Sonata is left unmentioned in some music handbooks this is soon forgotten when one listens to Janos Starker and Gyrgy Sebk playing the work so resolutely and with such refreshing vitality
Chopins Cello Sonata too undeservedly remains in the shadows thrown by his great piano concertos Here again the two musicians prove that they are a perfectly balanced team who complement one another admirably Their lightningswift interchanges between intimate introvert expression and nervous passion spiralling upwards to the cellos most dramatic top register are characteristic for the playing of this worldclass virtuoso duo who here present a remarkable recording of two rarely performed masterpieces
