Alfred Schnittke’s use of the elegiac voice of the cello evokes Russian musical tradition and history. His works for the cello were to a large extent inspired by his friendship and close collaboration with the exceptional musicians Mstislav Rostropovich, Alexander Ivashkin and Natalia Gutman, to all of whom he dedicated works. Rostropovich has said about the composer: ‘As far as I am concerned, the most remarkable thing about Schnittke is his all-embracing, all-encompassing genius… he uses everything invented before him. Uses it as his palette, his colours. And it is all so organic: for example, diatonic music goes side by side with complex atonal polyphony.’

Music is flux. Only the printed music on the page appears to us to be something objective, inalterable. Yet, the actual experience of music, which occurs anew and uniquely in each performance, is subjected to continual changes in spite of all “faithfulness to the original.” Personal experiences of life inform the effect of the music. It is the power of great music to convey its individual message at any time to every person. Thus the recordings on this album represent an invitation to undertake a very personal journey into Beethoven’s world.

German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser and Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson present a moving portrait of the Mendelssohn family with this recording of pieces by the siblings Felix and Fanny. Once composed for the popular Sunday Sessions at the Berlin Mendelssohn family house, these works fit into the typically nineteenth-century tradition of domestic music-making, albeit at the highest thinkable level. Beatson plays an 1837 Érard fortepiano, identical to the instrument that belonged to the Mendelssohn household when these pieces were composed.

The five cello sonatas span Beethoven’s three creative periods, with the audacious op.5 sonatas dating from the early years on his time in Vienna as a piano virtuoso and aspiring composer (1792-9), the great op.69 sonata is from the period that saw the composition of symphonies 4-8, the violin concerto, Mass in C and the String Quartets op59. The two op102 sonatas are from the cusp of the ‘late’ period, this is the time of the 9th Symphony, the Missa Solemnis, the great string quartets op127 – 135 and the last five piano sonatas.

Patchwork is a chance to join Eastern-European composers of the XXth century. Sonatas for flute and piano from Prokofiev, Enescu, Schulhoff and Muczynski show the strong personalities of the universal Masters. Those vibrant musics are made up with dancing & scintillating rhythms. The soul of the Slavic culture is being displayed here, on the model of warm and coloured mosaics of fabrics. Poetic dream-like and tender worlds are then arising, that enhance the unique musical sound of this duo.
