Steven Isserlis performs on a wartime trench cello

February 2018
Steven Isserlis

‘Perhaps the finest recording of Fauré’s First Sonata I have ever heard: he reveals the full stature of this extraordinary work. At the heart lies the visionary Andante: opening in a state of shimmering drift, it here acquires titanic momentum.’

The Cello in Wartime

Cello Sonatas by Fauré, Debussy and bridge; plus works by Webern, Saint-Saëns, Parry, Novello and trad.

Steven Isserlis (cello), Connie Shih (piano)

BIS BIS-2312    65:38 mins
