Beethoven Sonata in G minor Op.5 No.2
Beethoven Variations on ‘Bei Männern welche Liebe fühlen’
Brahms Sonata No.2 in F, Op.99
Colin Carr and Thomas Sauer return with masterworks for cello and piano. Beethoven’s Op.5 No.2 Sonata features virtuosic writing for both instruments. The variations on the duet from Die Zauberflöte demonstrate Beethoven’s inventiveness, the piano and cello taking the roles of Pamina and Papagena respectively. The concert concludes with Brahms’s Second Sonata written for the cellist Robert Hausmann. Renowned for his glorious, expansive tone, the Sonata is symphonic in proportions.
