Jean-Guihen Queyras & Alexander Melnikov

Play Beethoven, Chopin & Rachmaninov

An internationally respected and well-established musical partnership, the French cellist and Russian pianist tackle the late sonatas of Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov.

Beethoven Cello Sonata in D Op 102 No 2
Chopin Cello Sonata
Rachmaninov Cello Sonata 

Both respected international soloists in their own rights, French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras and Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov are also a well-established musical partnership and a much-admired one. They’ve performed and recorded Beethoven’s complete music for cello and piano to enormous acclaim, their passionate playing and perceptive insights a natural match.

It’s Beethoven that opens their rich International Festival recital: the D major Cello Sonata, Op 102 No 2, is a visionary late work, as compelling as it is intimate. They complete their sumptuous concert with two achingly Romantic cello sonatas, also from late in their composers’ careers: Chopin’s tender work, and Rachmaninov’s remarkably intense piece, which brings cello and piano together in an equal partnership of flamboyance and virtuosity.
