Timora Rosler cello
Klara Wurtz piano
The level of musicianship is outstanding. The full, rich, dynamic sounds emanating from this duo need to be heard to be believed. I realize the lion’s share of credit goes to Ludwig himself who composed these sonatas. But, still, they’re played with extraordinary skill.
Cello Sonata in F Op. 5 No. 1 (composed 1796; Beethoven was 26)
Cello Sonata in G Minor Op. 5 No. 2 (composed 1796; Beethoven was 26)
Cello Sonata in A Op. 69 (composed in 1808; Beethoven was 38)
Of the last sonata, its entry on Wikipedia says this:
The Sonata No. 3 dates from Beethoven’s most productive compositional period. Composed in the same year were the Violin Concerto and the two piano trios of Op. 70; the same year also saw the completion and publication of the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies.
