Beethoven / Lgt Young Soloists: Beethoven Recomposed
Artist: Beethoven / Lgt Young Soloists
Title: Beethoven Recomposed
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
To mark the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, Russian born arranger Paul Struck has arranged two of the composer's great mid-period chamber masterpieces for soloist and string ensemble. Expanding the sonorities of the 'Kreutzer' Sonata - Beethoven's most important chamber work for violin - allows the sonata's concertante quality to emerge in a new light. The Cello Sonata No. 3 equally succeeds in conceiving the piano part for ensemble, while exploring fullness of sound and maintaining transparency of texture.
