Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[Anner Bylsma's] recordings, including...the Beethoven Sonatas, with Mr. Bilson (on Nonesuch), exhibit a subtle attention to musical rhetoric as well as a love for the instrument's sonic powers (something not often attended to by original-instrument virtuosi)." -- Edward Rothstein, The New York Times [1/22/1992]

Written in 1796 for Prussian monarch Fredrick William II, an accomplished cellist, the two Opus 5 sonatas are not only the first sonatas for piano and cello, but Beethoven’s first seriously unique pieces, in which he stepped out from the influence of Haydn and Mozart and asserted himself as an original presence.

 Excellent. September 17, 2013 By Dr. Mitchell Gurk (Spencer, MA) See All My Reviews "Bylsma has a sound both rich and jazzy. Before this recording i'd never gotten the B cello sonatas; they'd sound interesting for the player but academic and tiring for the listener. Here are the emotions with full formality as well. This fp does not sound different from most modern pfs." Report Abuse
