Chopin: Cello sonata & Transcriptions for Cello & Piano

“What is most impressive about this performance is the exquisite pianissimo both achieve, while maintaining a perfect tonal balance. The old complaint that the dense piano part dominates simply does not apply here: Stott's touch is so gossamer-light, the engineers had no need to throw the cello forward unnaturally.” --BBC Music Magazine, December 2007 ****

“It would be hard to imagine a more powerful account of the Sonata than this one” --Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Truls Mørk (cello) & Kathy Stott (piano)

“Chopin's compositional output did not include a great deal of chamber music, but what he did write included a number of pieces for cello. From this one could assume he had a special affinity for the instrument. In this recording, we have taken this a step further by choosing transcriptions of music originally written for solo piano - pieces with a strong melodic line which seem to transport themselves to the cello so beautifully.” Truls Mørk
