Johannes Moser is joined by Dénes Várjon for Chopin’s Cello Sonata, a work that demands two virtuoso musicians. Chopin himself played at the premiere in 1848 with the Sonata’s dedicatee, Auguste Franchomme – all 300 tickets being sold within hours of the announcement. An admirer wrote to Chopin afterwards to say: You have transformed a public into a circle of friends. Britten’s Cello Sonata was inspired by the artistry of the great Rostropovich, to whom all cellists and all lovers of the cello owe a great debt. Britten’s Sonata was the first of five cello works he wrote for him.
