Notes & Reviews:

"Hewitt and Muller-Schott turn in elegant, lyrically effusive, and virtuosic performances... With an ensemble that seems nearly telepathic, they create sentimental yet witty accounts of the two Opus 5 sonatas and a truly heroic reading of the glorious Opus 69 sonata. Captured in crisp but smooth digital sound by Hyperion, this disc deserves to be heard by anyone who enjoys the repertoire." -All Music Guide

GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE

'The dynamic duo find overwhelming intensity in this music, in a performance packed with detail and emotional gravitas' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Daniel Müller-Schott and Angela Hewitt give Beethoven's first three cello sonatas a nimble and colourful outing ... Their duo engagement is compelling and their repertoire of gestures ... is exceedingly broad ... The recorded sound is beautifully balanced' (Gramophone)

'The success of this duo partnership is very evident in this first volume of Daniel Müller-Schott and Angela Hewitt's Beethoven cycle. They respond with imagination and flexibility to Beethoven's mercurial changes of mood, one moment tender and reflective, then bold and dynamic ... A first class release' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Müller-Schott's playing is strong and vibrant ... Hewitt brings her characteristic digital dexterity and sparkling articulation to bear ... The performances certainly make one look forward to their second disc' (International Record Review)

'In Hyperion's first release in a Beethoven cello sonata cycle, Daniel Müller-Schott's cello seems to hug you like a friendly bear ... The disc collects the two Op 5 sonatas and the magnificent Op 69; cherish it most for the players' teasing exchanges, for Hewitt's nimble fingers and Müller-Schott's golden warmth' (The Times)

'Here we are then, at the launch of a wonderful musical adventure, with the outstanding and exquisitely soulful young cellist Danel Müller-Schott, partnered by the wondrous Angela Hewitt at her most sparkling, pristine, warm and flawlessly penetrating in very superior accounts of the two opus 5 sonatas and the opus 69 in A Major ... A major collaboration' (Glasgow Herald)

'The whole recital is characterised by exquisite phrasing, clean lines and, best of all, an expressiveness that borders on the sublime' (BBC Online)

'Müller-Schott has a superbly eloquent and deliciously burnished tone, as nicely done as any I have ever heard... Angela Hewitt proves the perfect partner in this music with a sensitive and leading-when-necessary role that makes for a grand coupling. These might be the premiere Beethoven Cello Sonatas recordings when they are completed--this one is that good' (Audiophile Audition, USA)
