Beethoven’s sonatas for cello and piano span his entire creative life. Sonatas Nos.1 and 2, dating from the late 1790’s, were products of his early years as a virtuoso pianist and aspiring composer in Vienna. Sonata No.3 dates from the composer’s middle period and is contemporary with his fourth and firth symphonies. Sonatas Nos.4 and 5 were composed at the beginning of Beethoven’s visionary late period and rub shoulders with his last violin sonata. These authoritative performances from cellist Ralph Kirschbaum and pianist Shai Wosner were recorded immediately after concluding of a tour of all five sonatas and the variations across the USA and the UK.
