The first Danish stereo recording of these two imposing Russian cello sonatas are now transferred to CD and the close musical partnership of cellist Gert von Bülow and pianist Merete Westergaard can be admired again. Their technically sovereign apprach and big-boned performances still stand out in a crowded market and remain a fine testimony to these two significant and much admired Danish musicians.
The two leading Danish musicians, cellist Gert von Bülow and pianist Merete Westergaard are here together performing the only Cello Sonatas by Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev. The original was one of the first Danacord Long Playing releases and received overwhelming fine acclaim from many critics. Here is the chance to hear this rare LPagain newly transferred from the original master tapes to modern CD. Even with strong competition this CD will stand out as one of the finest versions.
