Beethoven – Kreutzer Sonata
There are emendations to the violin part, but much remains intact, which means that the cellist has to be pretty formidable to cope with the writing. Raphael Wallfisch is certainly qualified for such a task and proves that the ‘Kreutzer’ is an exhilarating and rewarding work to explore in this guise. The first movement is particularly bold and dramatic, aspects fully explored by this duo in a largely well-balanced recording … on this evidence it should grace the concert platform as a cello sonata in its own right.
