Beethoven Complete Cello Sonatas : Esther Ning Yau, piano and Rafael Popper-Keizer, cello
April 10, 2011
Beethoven’s five sonatas for cello and piano describe in many ways a journey through the composer’s life. They represent three stages: the first two were written when the young composer was making his name as a concert pianist. The Cello Sonata in A major was written at a time when his deafness was already quite considerable, while he composed numbers four and five in 1815, the year that marked the start of his last creative period.
