Beethoven: Cello Sonatas Nos. 4 & 5

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Strong, sensitive, and often quite funny, this 2004 recording of Beethoven's last two "Cello Sonatas" coupled with his Handel "Variations for cello and piano" and his "Duet for viola and cello" by cellist Maria Kliegel, pianist Nina Tichman, and violist Tabae Zimmermann will be a welcome addition to any large and deep collection of Beethoven's works for cello. Kliegel is a persuasive cellist with a warm tone and a powerful bow, Tichman is a convincing accompanist with a deep tone and a marvelous technique, and together they perform with telepathic ease and complete understanding. In the late "Sonatas," Kliegel and Tichman catch the work's odd shapes and eccentric melodies...

Strong, sensitive, and often quite funny, this 2004 recording of Beethoven's last two "Cello Sonatas" coupled with his Handel "Variations for cello and piano" and his "Duet for viola and cello" by cellist Maria Kliegel, pianist Nina Tichman, and violist Tabae Zimmermann will be a welcome addition to any large and deep collection of Beethoven's works for cello. Kliegel is a persuasive cellist with a warm tone and a powerful bow, Tichman is a convincing accompanist with a deep tone and a marvelous technique, and together they perform with telepathic ease and complete understanding. In the late "Sonatas," Kliegel and Tichman catch the work's odd shapes and eccentric melodies and unite them into a singularly moving musical structure. In the Handel "Variations," Kliegel and Tichman grasp both the affection and the humor of the work as well as holding its long line through 12 variations. And in the quirky "Duet with Two Obbligato Eyeglasses," Kliegel and Zimmermann play together like old friends happily catching up on their lives in one of Beethoven's most charming little bagatelles. Naxos' sound is as finely detailed and warmly textured as any recording from any of the bigger, more expensive companies.
