The two Cello Sonatas by Johannes Brahms are in very stark contrast to each other. This is not solely due to the more than twenty years separating the works. Brahms had a preference for pairs of works with the same instrumentation, which he frequently composed according to the principle of contrast. A cello version of the Violin Sonata Op. 78 supplements the two original sonatas in a charming way. Cellist Daniel Müller-Schott and pianist Francesco Piemontesi team up for this all-Brahms program.
