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.”
