“Beethoven Suites” is an album of works by or inspired by the great composer performed by mandolinist Julien Martineau and pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell. Martineau once again spotlights the mandolin’s remarkable repertoire, nobility of character, and natural ability as a partner. From Beethoven, there are four youthful pieces he wrote for this unusual duo combination, and the Allegretto of his Symphony No. 7 in a transcription by Hans Sitt. Gathered around Beethoven are those inspired by him, including Hummel, Kreisler, and two composers of today: Walter Murphy and Corentin Apparailly.
