Brahms’ and César Franck’s violin sonatas have been firm favourites among cellists for a long time now. A version of Franck’s sonata appeared for cello almost immediately after it was published. Some people (among whom Pablo Casals) even speculated that the sonata was actually written for cello, but Franck had been bribed to present it as a wedding gift to violinist Eugène Ysaÿe. Extremely talented French cellist Edgar Moreau will be playing his own version.
Brahms’ Violin Sonata No. 1 (Opus 78) is also much loved among cellists due to its intimacy and magnificent melodies. The 2018 National Cello Competition winner, Eline Hensels, will be performing Schumann’s Märchenbilder (viola), which sounds equally enchanting on cello as do Adagio and Allegro (French horn and piano) and Fantasiestücke (clarinet and piano).
