The national schools

Sonatas by Rachmaninov, Chostakovitch

A tribute to Rachmaninov thoughout his immense sonata for cello and piano, in regard with another genious of the Russian 20th century, Dmitri Chostakovitch.

Women composers

Unpublished sonatas and other pieces by Rita Strohl, Henriette Renié, Mélanie Bonis and Nadia Boulanger
In the early twentieth century the rules of propriety still required women cellists to play their instrument sitting sideways… and while a few women composers, such as Nadia Boulanger, enjoyed a glorious destiny, many others remained in the background.
In this programme we turn the spotlight on a number of first-rate women composers, some of them completely unknown to the general public, with a number of singular and highly contrasting works, including a short salon piece by Mélanie Bonis and a full-blown post-Romantic sonata by Rita Strohl.

J.S Bach

Three sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach for viol and obbligato harpsichord played on the piccolo cello.

The Bach dynasty

Sonatas by J.S. Bach, W.F. Bach and C.P.E. Bach
Although Johann Christian and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach inherited the language of Baroque, they were soon affected by the new Sturm und Drang movement and Empfindsamkeit, both of which laid the emphasis on emotion. Their sonatas reflect many influences heralding the beginnings of Romanticism.
