Still predominantly used as a bass instrument in the 18th century, the Violoncello underwent a liberating process which led to its use in a variety of functions, including the melodic lead. However, there are few musically significant examples of 19th-century chamber music in which the violoncello and piano (or fortepiano) are paid equal attention. We believe that the works selected for this title bring out the best of both instruments.
