Complete Works for violoncello & piano

Jean-Guihen Queyras, Alexander Melnikov
    • Apple Music

    Beethoven’s works for cello and piano were written between 1796 and 1815. He in effect created the sonata for cello with an independent piano part in his op.5, intended for Jean-Louis Duport and dedicated to Frederick William II of Prussia; like the delightful variations on themes by Handel and Mozart, they represent his first-period style, as Op.69 typifies the second. The two sublime Sonatas op.102, for their part, already herald the unprecedented stylistic freedom of the composer’s final decade.
