Album Review

The 5-string cello is more than simply the trade-mark of Matthias Michael Beckmann; it is his artistic credo and his message. Even in familiar pieces it opens up new sound spaces. Franz Schubert's Sonata for Arpeggione embraces whole worlds of emotion; Robert Schumann's pieces are filled with the most profound poetry. Here Beckmann and distinguished pianist Elena Braslavsky form an exquisite partnership. 

Classical form combined with sensitive Romanticism and  sublime melody – this is great, timeless music, in all its energy and humanity.
