The Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847) has been highly regarded in Britain from the time of his first visit in 1829. He was a favourite of Queen Victoria, and also made several trips to Scotland, inspiring some of his best-known and most evocative works.
Mendelssohn’s Cello Sonata No.2 in D Major (Op. 58) was composed in 1843 for Cello and Piano. It is scored in four movements: Allegro Assai Vivace - Allegretto Scherzando - Adagio - Molto Allegro E Vivace. It is heavily influenced by Bach, borrowing elements of both structure and melody from some of Bach’s works. This Urtext edition is published by Henle Verlag.
