The result is spirited performances, as joyous as they are excellent.

Be that as it may, Bailey/Dinnerstein is a fine performance that has been beautifully recorded by the Telarc engineers.

I invite any interested reader to audition the samples and judge for him- or herself.

I got this set after hearing Ms. Dinnerstein's outstanding CD of the Goldberg Variations and Mr. Bailey's excellent recording of the Bach cello suites. I did not feel I needed another set of these pieces since I have the sumptuous recordings of Rostropovich and Richter, and Fournier and Schnabel. But this set is distinguished by the joie de vivre of the musicians, their energy and entire commitment to the music. It is impossible not to be delighted by the quality and enthusiasm of the performances. There is a warmth and intimacy achieved by the pair that is comparatively rare. The result is spirited performances, as joyous as they are excellent. Mr. Bailey, who comes across as somewhat brooding and intense when alone, partakes of the shared happiness in this set and his performance gains by the collaboration. The sound is also very fine, and the price is unquestionably reasonable. I can only look forward to hearing more performances by both of these gifted musicians.

I'm not a professional musician just a music lover who prefers large ensembles but I heard this duo on the radio and they bowled me over. Immediately downloaded MP3. They are dynamite together. To my ear the playing is perfect and you feel you are right inside the instruments. You can't help but admire perfection and passion/energy. Ms Dinnerstein has justifiably become quite famious. I went an got the Goldberg variations too. Very happy with both.

To be fair and square, I didn't expect to like this performance a lot. I haven't been pleased with Simone Dinnerstein's two Bach recordings, and I wouldn't list Zuill Bailey's recording of the Bach cello suites among the recommended choices either. I ordered this recording of the 5 piano/cello sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven out of peripheral professional curiosity. Honestly I was hoping I wouldn't need to give it less than four stars, to avoid the angry comments that Dinnerstein's fans will heap on this review as soon as I post it. And if it were not for the exaggerated attention Dinnerstein has been receiving from Oprah Winfrey and other media fame-makers, I'd probably just shelf this 2-CD set and forget it.

But it's awfully bad. It's simply not main stage concert level, in interpretation or technique. Many passages are brutally overplayed - coarse, bumptious, pounded on the keys, gouged on the strings - and outright ugly. Throughout all five sonatas, rather extreme dynamics just 'happen' without rhyme or reason, without a sense of sequential progression, loud just for the loudness, soft without poignancy. Bailey's cello tone is consistently harsh and growly, and though he strive for contrasts of dynamics, he seldom varies his bowing enough to exploit the timbres of the instrument expressively. He's an old-time up-the-middle fullback, grinding for short yardage. Dinnerstein's pianism is either stubbornly eccentric or completely sporadic; her touch is alternately plinky and poundy, mostly the latter. Her sostenuto is sometimes so overladen that relatively uncomplicated chords turn to mudslides. It's all crash and jumble, without delicacy or vivacity, without Viennese elegance or Beethoven's Flemish wit.

Just when I thought that I might be getting jaded with Beethoven, along comes this gorgeous set! I love Bailey's cello sound - it is like Mischa Maisky having a _very_ good day. Not to be outdone, Simone Dinnerstein plays a sweet _and_ powerful 1903 Steinway, the kind of piano that Beethoven is playing right now in heaven.

The interplay between Bailey and Dinnerstein is a joy to hear. Sometimes they become a bit mannered, tending to overemphasize every little detail. That works better, in my opinion, in the earlier Beethoven pieces (the Mozart and Handel variations and Sonatas #1 and #2) that benefit from a little goosing. In the middle/later works, especially #3, I am more of a let it flow / let it rip kind of guy. I'll still take Ma/Ax overall for that reason. Be that as it may, Bailey/Dinnerstein is a fine performance that has been beautifully recorded by the Telarc engineers. I've already listened to it several times, and am very glad that I bought it.

We attended a concert in Tallahassee, FL, with Zuill Bailey and loved his sound, style and musicality. We bought one CD from the concert then came home and ordered others we found on Amazon.com. We have other cellist CD's of Beethoven's works but enjoy this interpretation more than others. Since we are amateur cellists this gives us something to strive for and listening helps us learn the solo repertoire.

Knowing the playing of Simone Dinnerstein, I couldn't imagine that this disk wouldn't be wonderful. The music completely lives up to expectations of both musicians. I would highly recommend it for any lover of piano music, cello music, or chamber music. Or for anyone curious about traditional concert music.
