Brahms, Johannes

Cello Sonata no.1 in E minor, op.38
Cello Sonata no.2 in F major, op.99


Marie-Elisabeth Hecker (cello)
Martin Helmchen (piano)


Since her high-profile victory at the 2005 Rostropovich Competition (she is the only winner ever to have taken both the First Prize and two special jury prizes), Marie-Elisabeth Hecker has belonged among the cellists who really count in the world. For her very first sonata recording, she is reunited with her partner both on the concert platform and in private life, the stylish pianist Martin Helmchen, in a programme of Brahms. The combination of the cellist whose playing was described by Die Zeit as ‘moving and instinctively beautiful’ and the pianist whom Diapason calls a ‘master of sound, tempo and articulation’ promises to be a moment of true chamber music, lyrical and brimming with complicity.
