Review By James Inverne,Gramophone,August 2011

A fascinating exploration of Beethoven works that don’t often grab the spotlight, this. David Geringas and Ian Fountain offer profoundly thoughtful and in some ways dutiful interpretations (sticking closely to indications in the scores) but ind expressive freedoms through that approach. Not as showy as rival versions, this is a poised, considered set.

Review By Nalen Anthoni ,Gramophone,August 2011

Enriching performances of Beethoven’s complete music for piano and cello

Historic indeed: the Op 5 pair (1796) appear to be the first cello sonatas with a writtenout piano part. But Beethoven limited himself to two movements, preceding each first movement with a slow introduction, that of the G minor Sonata virtually a slow movement in itself titled Adagio sostenuto ed espressivo.
