Here in one beautiful package is every one of Beethoven's five magnificent sonatas for Violoncello and Piano. These time-honored works include a range of difficulty levels and musical complexity. An absolutely essential element of every violoncellist's repertoire, newly recorded in Vienna, Beethoven's musical home.
Wolfgang Panhofer is one of Europe's great 'cellists, having been called "a second Rostropovich." Listen to Mr. Panhofer's soaring interpretations in the reference versions, then you step in and play the part yourself with renowned virtuoso pianist Sung-Suk Kang.
Includes a beautiful and authoritative, newly engraved solo part, edited by Mr. Panhofer, printed on high-quality ivory paper, and seven compact discs containing a complete version of each sonata with soloist; then a second version in digital stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus you, the soloist. Also includes slow-tempo accompaniments of the faster movements to help you learn each piece!
