Gabriel Schwabe (cello), Nicholas Rimmer (piano)

A period of twenty-one years separates Brahms’ two Cello Sonatas. Suffused with lyricism and expressive ardour, the First has become one of his most popular chamber works. The Second is more sober and succinct than the earlier work, yet strikingly original, not least for the wide range required of the cellist to reach unusually high notes from the very low register.

Chosen to suit the cello’s particular colour and articulation, the six songs are heard in idiomatic and sensitive arrangements which stay as close as possible to the originals.

“Schwabe and Rimmer bring lots of drive and energy to the outer movements and they build up the tension in the Allegro appassionata to a powerful climax…fluidity and subtlety [are] far more in evidence in their enterprising transcriptions of Six Songs, all of which are projected with affection and bags of charisma.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2015

Available now individually for the first time at mid-price, the collaboration of these musical titans produced a benchmark recording that has never been out of the catalogue since its first release over 30 years ago.

“With playing of this calibre, with both artists wonderfully attuned to each other’s responses, every nuance tells and Brahms’s bold melodic lines soar out from the speakers (and the cello seems only just inside them) to capture the listener’s imagination, and provide an enthralling musical experience in each individual work.” Ivan March, Gramophone Magazine, September 1983

“Isserlis here achieves a beauty, finesse and attack with the cello less evident from his playing 20 years ago: his technique is phenomenal, his bowing at once wildly abandoned and absolutely precise in terms of his musical intentions. He has the advantage of a brother-in-arms in Hough, who treats the score with the symphonic sweep it deserves.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2005 *****

“In 1984 Steven Isserlis made excellent recordings for Hyperion of the Brahms sonatas with Peter Evans; this time he's added some substantial extra items – the two Suk pieces, wonderfully played, are particularly welcome. The new recording is fuller in sound and more realistic; Stephen Hough's commanding playing of Brahms's 'big' piano parts could, one feels, overpower the cello but, thanks to his sensitivity, this never happens.
In the sonatas, the timings are in nearly every case slightly shorter, due not to any very different tempi but because the music now flows more easily, with less sense of effort. Some listeners may miss the intensity of Evans's involvement with the music but the new versions have a wonderful sense of line, and Hough's more detached approach comes with vivid characterisation – seen in the sinister colours of No 2's Allegro passionato, for example, or the limpid, elegant playing of No 1's Allegrettoquasi menuetto.
Only in one place, the finale of No 2, is there the feeling that Hough's fluency creates a problem: repeating the opening theme, he pushes on in a way that detracts from the sunny, contented atmosphere at the start. These are deeply considered, immensely satisfying accounts. Isserlis and Hough make a formidable team.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“Sonically the instruments are equal partners, and musically that's deliciously the case as well, with Isserlis and Hough reacting to every nuance of the other's playing, finishing each others' musical sentences...The timbre of Isserlis's gut-strung cello is another plus” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 29th November 2005

Pieter Wispelwey (cello) & Paulo Giacometti (piano)

The summer of 1886 was one of the most prolific in the life of Johannes Brahms. The alpine grandeur of Lake Thun and Brahms’s buoyant holiday mood conjured up so many melodies that he declared he was “afraid to step on them”. In a few weeks’ time, Brahms produced two of his major chamber works, the Cello Sonata, op.99, and the Violin Sonata, op.100, that suits the cello delightfully. These chamber icons are aptly coupled to Schubert’s blissfully uplifting Sonata, D574. Cello virtuoso Pieter Wispelwey is at once playful and profound in these summer works, and his interpretation is, from now on, open to debate in The Interpretation Room.

Pieter Wispelwey and Paulo Giacometti will record the complete chamber duos by Franz Schubert and Johannes Brahms on 6 CDs.

Wispelwey and Giacometti have been called “exceptionally imaginative and impassioned performers” (American Record Guide), and their collaboration has spawned recordings rated as “fascinating, provocative, almost perverse” on account of their “immediacy and involvement” (Sunday Times).

Alexander Baillie (cello) & John Thwaites (piano)

SOMM welcomes this very special new release by Alexander Baillie and John Thwaites, two outstanding artists at the top of their profession. With this CD SOMM pays tribute to Alexander Baillie on his 60th birthday and warmly congratulates the two artists celebrating their 30th Anniversary as a Duo. The Brahms Sonatas have formed part of many a recital by Baillie and Thwaites over the years but what makes their recording so very special is the two artists' choice of pianos. All three instruments were chosen not only to be authentic for their time and the Brahms timeline, but as outstandingly beautiful pianos in their own right. Recorded last May at the famous Gert Hecher Klavier-Athelier in Vienna, the three pianos in the Collection are Hecher's pride and joy for their unique qualities of sound. The E minor Brahms Sonata Op. 38 was recorded on a pure-toned, sweetly singing straight-strung Rönisch piano from the 1860s. The F major, Op. 99 Sonata is on an Ehrbar grand piano built in 1877, whose characteristics are a soft, sensuous sound with a resonant bass and a heavy Viennese action. The Four Serious Songs, Brahms's last work, is played on a cross-strung Viennese Streicher which dates from 1878. The sound is large, dignified, profound and colourful, characteristics typical of all Streicher's instruments.

“Thwaites/Baillie absorb Fanny Davies’s wonderful image of Brahms lingering ‘not on a note, but on a whole idea, as if unable to tear himself away from its beauty’” BBC Music Magazine, November 2016 ***

“This is one of those rather special discs that one will want to return to for the special qualities these artists bring. Alexander Baillie provides playing of great emotional depth and is wonderfully accompanied by John Thwaites.” The Classical Reviewer, July 2016
