Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn didn't write very much music for cello and piano - just two sonatas and a few shorter works. Lyrical, and early-romantic in style, these works are performed here by two instrumentalists well known to the Hyperion catalog as two-thirds of the Florestan Trio.

'Chamber-music playing of the highest order, empathetic and warm-hearted' (Birmingham Post)

'Since the performances are expert in every respect this disc deserves a wide audience' (CIassic CD)
