Schumann: Fünf Stücke im Volkston/ Debussy: and Britten Sonata for Cello and Piano - Mstislav Rostropovich and Benjamin Britten
Britten's five-movement work was written specially for Rostropovich, it is unlike anything Britten wrote previously. The idiom itself is unexpected. However, although it demands fantastic feats from the cellist, it is hardly a display piece. The recording is superb in every way. Debussy's Cello Sonata was the first of a planned cycle of six sonatas for different instruments, written, so Debussy emphasized, by a musician francais. The writing for the instruments is brilliant. Britten and Rostropovich bring a clarity and point which suit it perfectly. The recording is excellent.
