Kreutzer Sonata - CC1014


Raphael Wallfisch cello
John York piano · Yuko Inoue viola

Ludwig van Beethoven
Sonata in A major Op.47 'Kreutzer'
Sonata in F major Op.17
Duet for Viola and Cello, WoO 32

Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata - written "in the style of a concerto" - has long been considered one of the great challenges in the chamber music repertoire. Here a recently discovered transcription by the composer's pupil and friend Carl Czerny receives its world premiere recording by the distinguished partnership of Raphael Wallfisch and John York.

Coupled with Beethoven's own transcription of his Horn Sonata and the rarely heard 'Eyeglass' Duet with Yuko Inoue, this Cd fulfils Cello Classics' remit to bring rare and neglected repertoire to the world stage.
