Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Alexandre Tharaud and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras are long-established as a duo team, but this is the first time that Queyras has joined Tharaud for an Erato recording. They have chosen works that lie at the heart of the Romantic repertoire, all by Brahms: his two cello sonatas and the duo’s own transcriptions of six of the Hungarian Dances.

-----

REVIEW:

Queyras and Tharaud display a fine, distinctive balance of ‘malleability’ and ‘continuity of line’; the sense of ease with which they play with tempo is particularly impressive. The duo’s arrangement of six of Brahms’s Hungarian Dances – played with elegantly plonked dollops of schmaltz and a joyous reveling in virtuoso display – makes this
Read more disc pretty much irresistible.
