Editorial Reviews

The mercurial partnership of Angela Hewitt and Daniel Müller- Schott brought overwhelming intensity and emotional gravitas to their first disc of Beethoven s cello sonatas. Here in this second volume they present two more of these groundbreaking masterpieces, together with the composer s homages to Mozart and Handel works that are equally important components of the cello repertoire. Hewitt s characteristic digital dexterity and deep understanding of the classical style and Müller-Schott s vibrant playing combine to create performances of great energy and sensitivity. Works on the disc include the two sonatas of opus 102 and three sets of variations the Variations in G major on See the conqu ring hero comes from Handel s Judas Maccabaeus WoO45, the Variations in F major on Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen from Mozart s Die Zauberflöte Op. 66 and the Variations in E flat major on Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen from Mozart s Die Zauberflöte WoO46.

The new volume of Beethoven Cello Sonatas by Daniel Muller-Schott (Cello) and Angela Hewitt (Piano) is pure delight - a breath of fresh air for spring. The two sonatas proper (Op.102, No. 1 in C major and No.2 in D major) are played with mastery and verve, and would be a feast in themselves. What makes the disc really special, however, are the two sets of variations - on Haydn's "See the conqu'ring hero" and on Mozart's "Bei Mannern ..." from the Magic Flute. The duo are clealry enjoying themselves playing these pieces, and the result is a real treat.

This splendid recording of Beethoven's final two (2) Cello Sonatas in C Major and D Major, Opus 102 along with the notes contained therein reminded me of the fact that Beethoven's compositions for the cello did as much to "advance musically" the cello as his compositions "advanced musically" the piano, symphony, string quartet, etc . Whatever historically his compositions for the cello "did" for the cello, this recording with Daniel Muller-Schott on cello and Angela Hewitt on piano is fabulously played. They invest the two sonatas with passion and technical brilliance with loads of bravado and tenderness when called for. Likewise the "filler" compositions of the Variations on the tune "See the conquering hero", and two operatic arias from Mozart's "Magic Flute". Daniel plays with wonderful intonation and without annoying "glottal" attacks on the strings. His playing is most beautiful. Angela is at her most brilliant.

The two volumes of Beethoven Cello Sonatas by Angela Hewitt and Daniel Müller-Schott are simply excellent. There are many very fine recordings of these works and, in their rather distinctive way, these stand with the best of them, I think. I have recently tried these discs after hearing the excellent Isserlis/Levin set Beethoven: Cello Sonatas / Horn Sonata / Variations (period instruments). As I have said in my review there, although I love the cello (it is, or at least was, my instrument) and love much of Beethoven's music, I have struggled a bit with these sonatas in the past. The brilliant but to me slightly forbidding Rostropovich/Richter recordings and even the youthful zing of du Pré and Barenboim left me feeling more respect than affection for the Sonatas. They aren't straightforward pieces and the two late Op.102 Sonatas especially can, like the Late Quartets, be quite a challenging listen. Well, you know what it's like: you wait a lifetime for a set of Beethoven Cello Sonatas that you really like and then two come along at once.

Here we have two deeply thoughtful musicians really getting inside this music and finding real meaning in it. I have the sense that every bar has been fully considered so that the phrasing, rubato, dynamic shifts and so on always has a significance which serves the music. Once or twice in the early sonatas I thought this slightly overdone so that it became slightly mannered in places, but it's a small, personal feeling.
