The two cello sonatas by Johannes Brahms are in very stark contrast to each other. This is not solely due to the more than twenty years separating the works. Brahms had a preference for pairs of works with the same instrumentation, which he frequently composed according to the principle of contrast. In the case of the cello sonatas, it is above all the character and mood of the respective pieces that describe the contrasts. In the version for cello, the Violin Sonata, op.78, one of Brahms finest chamber works, supplements the two original cello sonatas in a charming way. Daniel Müller-Schott and Francesco Piemontesi team up once more for this all Brahms programme after the great success of their release of cello sonatas of the 20th century (C872151).
