Edward Grieg (1843-1907)
Cello Sonata in a minor, Op. 36
1. Movement: Allegro Agitato

Recorded (live): Parish Church, Aldeburgh, 20 June 1964
The Grieg Cello Sonata in a minor with Richter have circulated for years on the tape underground but here we have the BBC's own masters in stereo. These tapings are also notable because they are among the very few performances that the duo gave outside Russia. The Grieg cello sonata finds the partnership at its best, both players putting out waves of beautiful tone and expanding effortlessly into the melodies - one or two of which Grieg borrowed from earlier works.
