About

With this new album devoted to Prokofiev, cellist Bruno Philippe continues his exploration of Russian music.

Having already recorded a recital of Rachmaninov's and Myaskovsky's Sonatas with Jérôme Ducros, here he is reunited with his long-time musical partner Tanguy de Williencourt on the piano, but also with his mentor, conductor Christoph Eschenbach leading the hr-Sinfonieorchester Frankfurt.

On the programme, Prokofiev's romantic Cello Sonata, coupled with his Sinfonia concertante, a Mount Everest of technical challenges – both works having been written for the great Rostropovich, who gave the first performances in 1950 and 1952.
