Onyx Records has this week announced the release of German cellist Leonard Elschenbroich's new album: Beethoven: Sonatas for Cello and Piano.
Recorded with pianist Alexei Grynyuk, the disc features all 5 Beethoven Cello Sonatas - plus Beethoven's own cello transcription of his Horn Sonata in F Major, Op. 17.
''Since we started performing all the Beethoven Sonatas as a recital program ten years ago, it was our dream to record them ... " Leonard has told The Violin Channel.
''Leading up to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, we are proud to release an album of his six cello sonatas - including his own little-known arrangement of the Horn Sonata ... " he has said.
"We are especially excited about the release on vinyl - made at London’s Abbey Road."
