About

Beethoven had no worries about music written for one instrument being ‘arranged’ for another. The duos on this record were originally for clarinet and bassoon. The transcribed performances are beautiful, and unmistakably Beethoven.

The Sonata was written in 1800 for piano and horn with an optional cello. The E flat variations are perhaps the best of three sets that Beethoven wrote for this combination.

"Partnership of real equality...Ricci and Virizlay play like very warm-hearted angels...the blend is impressive." - Washington Sunday Star
