JRI Recordings has announced the released of American cellist Nancy Green new album: ‘Beethoven : Complete Works For Piano And Cello‘.
Recorded with pianist Frederick Moyer, the disc features Beethoven’s five cello and piano sonatas – plus the Twelve Variations on ‘See, The Conquering Hero‘, Seven Variations on ‘Bei Mannern welche Liebe fuhlen’ – and Twelve Variations on ‘Ein Madchen oder Weibchen’.
“The Beethoven sonatas for piano and cello are probably the pinnacle of the cello repertoire as far as profundity, variety of expression, and historical importance is concerned … they represent beautifully the span of his early, middle and late periods and were the precursors of the modern cello sonata where parity between the cello and piano is forefront …” Nancy has told The Violin Channel.
“From cosmic melancholy to overflowing exuberance and pure joy, from stark severity to sweet tenderness, I hope listeners will carry with them the depth of this music’s insight and expression in their hearts as a unique treasure from among the greatest works that western art music has to offer,” she has said.
