Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Hindemith's music for cello closely follows his evolution as a composer. With elements that look back to Schumann, Three Pieces, Op. 8 is among his earliest published works, while the solo Sonata, Op. 25 is indebted to Bach's Cello Suites and is one of the most intense and demanding of his chamber works. The ingenious variations on A frog he went a-courting are lighter in nature, contrasting with the weighty depths of the Sonata for Cello and Piano. Sébastien Hurtaud was first prize winner at the Adam International Cello Competition in 2009.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
All of these performers employ considerable rubato in their phrasing and make emotional points by a wide dynamic range. The result is a more romantic Hindemith than we heard in his lifetime. Hurtaud and Hurtado are particularly notable in this way, and Naxos has given them a fine recording that presents both ends of the sonic spectrum with clarity and power. Both are fine recordings.
