With the song Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer, Brahms had the cello look back towards the end of his life without words, yet in a meaningful way. The melancholy Cello Sonata op. 38 was written in 1862 in close proximity to Clara Schumann. Brahms loved the cello for its serious character and preferred it to convey subtle personal messages. Robert Schumann’s rich network of relationships with other artists of his era is reflected in his cycle Carnaval (1834/35) for solo piano, from which Pascal Amoyel plays a selection.
The French cello has its muse, and her name is Emmanuelle Bertrand, wrote Diapason magazine (December 2015) of the French cellist. Anyone who hears Emmanuelle Bertrand play must actually immediately fall in love with her sound, said NDRKultur.
Emmanuelle Bertrand and the pianist Pascal Amoyel have been a duo since 1999 and are both amongst the most sought-after soloists in France on their respective instruments. When the artist duo plays together, one senses that they simply understand each other blindly and can immerse themselves completely in the music. Their moving, profound renditions are the result of finely balanced interplay.
Their previous recordings of cello sonatas by Shostakovich (2013), Chopin (2015) and Saint-Saëns (2017) have been awarded important critics’ prizes such as the Diapason d’Or and the Cannes Classical Award.
