Excellent Alternatives to the Standard Repertoire for Violoncello and Piano
Having been the conductor of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra for many years, Carl Reinecke was one of the most important figures among musicians in the second half of the 19th century. His three Sonatas for violoncello and piano are of amazing musical quality which putsthem right up with sonatas of Johannes Brahms. It is all the more surprising, however, that a noteworthy urtext edition of these works did not exist up until now; cellists often had to fall back on copies of the first editions only a few of which are extant. This gap is now closed by the Wiener Urtext Edition. It encompasses all three sonatas in one volume, thus adding three masterpieces of Romantic chamber music to the less than comprehensive repertoire of the 19th century for violoncello and piano.
