Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a set of Ludwig van Beethoven's sonatas for cello and piano performed by Daniil Shafran and Anton Ginsburg. Daniil Shafran was generally recognized as one of the best cellists of the 20th century. His concert performances from the late 1930's were always a success in Leningrad, Moscow, Vienna, Munich, Rome, London, New York and other cities. "A Paganini of the 20th century," "a musician who possesses the most melodious sound among all the living string performers" are just a couple of numerous rapturous comments from music critics on the cellist's play. This recording was made by Daniil Shafran and his permanent ensemble partner and pianist Anton Ginsburg in 1971. Their performance was noted by Soviet and foreign critics as one of the best interpretations of Beethoven's cello sonatas.
