Felix Mendelssohn Sonatas for Cello and Piano

David Soyer and Harriet Wingreen
Felix Mendelssohn Sonatas for Cello and Piano

One of Felix Mendelssohn's first passions was string chamber music. His two cello sonatas and set of Variations in D , Op. 17 confirm "his love for the cello." The Sonata in B-flat Op. 45, written for his brother Paul, features heroic highs and lilting lows, while the adagio of the Sonata in D Op. 58 pays homage to the chorales of Bach. The formidable duo of cellist David Soyer and pianist Harriet Wingreen gives new life to these influential chamber works.
