Notes and Editorial Reviews

Emmanuelle Bertrand and Pascal Amoyel celebrate twenty years together as a cello and piano duet. It is hardly surprising that they chose to mark this anniversary with the music of Brahms, a composer who has been a constant on their beautiful journey together. Beyond his two ultra-Romantic sonatas, they take listeners to an even deeper emotional realm, with his lieder, splendidly "sung" by the cello!

 

REVIEW:

 

It’s rare to find interpretations that marry insight and naturalness, and that sends this recording to very near the top of an imposingly tall heap.
