Beethoven’s five sonatas for violoncello and piano form a cosmos all of their own. They exemplify the Titan’s three compositional periods, and the interrelations between them shape a surprisingly self-contained work group surveying the composer’s entire life.

Reason enough for Manuel Fischer-Dieskau and Connie Shih to present an absolutely new recording of this cycle – now for the first time on SACD in original 2+2+2 surround sound.

Manuel Fischer-Dieskau and Connie Shih dedicate themselves to this opus magnum with passion and play a brilliant game of musical catch. From sparkling virtuosity to sonorous espressivo, from structural clarity with hefty Beethovian accents to absolutely lavish audio sumptuousness, this double SACD at a special price offers chamber music at its best.

“Manuel Fischer-Dieskau offers suavely toned shaping of the melodies that is both intelligent and expressive” 
– The Strad Magazine

“Like his father at his best, Manuel Fischer-Dieskau knows how to intervene in a way that brings the music to life, he extracts the maximum range of expression from the scores.” – MusicWeb International
