Five Beethoven Cello Sonatas


When considered as a complete set, Beethoven’s five sonatas for cello and piano are a chronicle of his evolution as a composer. Nos. 1 and 2 reflect his early adoration for Mozart and Haydn, while No. 3 presents an equal relationship between the instruments that was ahead of its time. Finally, Nos. 4 and 5 demonstrate Beethoven’s late-career defiance of traditional musical forms.
