Two of music’s most exciting and inspirational performers have joined forces for this undeniable classic. Helene Grimaud and Sol Gabetta recently performed this repertoire at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad and received a standing ovation. This release captures the pairs riveting chemistry and marks the first album that either artist has embarked on a duo project. The album reprises the same program the duo performed in Gstaad: Robert Schumann’s “Fantasiestucke”, Claude Debussy’s “Sonata for Cello and Piano in D minor”, Johannes Brahms’ “Sonata for Cello and Piano No.1 in E minor” and Dmitri Shostakovich’s “Sonata for Cello and Piano.” Both champions display their charismatic virtuosity.

Reviews
"... the duo's playful work on Schumann's "Drei Fantasiestücke" bears out both Grimaud's assessment and the pair's shared sensibilities. Brahms' Sonata for Piano and Cello No.1 in E minor, though possessed of more gravitas, is more lightly dealt with than I've heard before, while they bring a questing spirit to Debussy's Sonata for Cello and Piano in D minor, Gabetta's robust pizzicato work in the second movement and Grimaud's animated runs in the closing section both evoking the early jazz influence of the late Romantics." - Independent
