Notes & Reviews:

A period of twenty-one years separates Brahms' two Cello Sonatas. Suffused with lyricism and expressive ardour, the First has become one of his most popular chamber works. The Second is more sober and succinct than the earlier work, yet strikingly original not least for the wide range required of the cellist to reach unusually high notes from the very low register. Chosen to suit the cello's particular colour and articulation, the six songs are heard in idiomatic and sensitive arrangements which stay as close as possible to the originals.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2015
Schwabe and Rimmer bring lots of drive and energy to the outer movements and they build up the tension in the Allegro appassionata to a powerful climax... fluidity and subtlety [are] far more in evidence in their enterprising transcriptions of Six Songs, all of which are projected with affection and bags of charisma.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Here is an interesting way of staying with Brahms through an entire CD of cello music. Schwabe and Rimmer have transcribed a number of Brahms lieder for cello and piano and surrounded them with the two great sonatas. Also, the songs they have chosen were all written in between the sonatas and are played chronologically from Opus 43 to 97.
