Ysaÿe Although Eugene Ysaye is known for his virtuosity on the violin, he apparently also studied the cello in his youth, and maintained a great love for the cello's sound. In fact, his compositions for cello comprise the second largest number of pieces in his catalogue (after those for violin, of course!). This Sonata for Solo Cello, Op. 28 was composed around the same time as his solo violin sonatas, and the similarities are certainly audible. What is perhaps more striking about this infrequently performed work is Ysaye's real grasp of cello technique and idiom. It is a difficult work, to be sure - on par with the violin sonatas - which may explain why so few cellists perform it regularly. However, it possesses a rich, dark beauty that accents the existing charm of the cello's depth... -Henle
Cassadó The Suite, like the Cello Concerto and the Piano Trio, came from one Cassadó's most prolific periods, in the mid-1920s. It consists of three dance movements: Preludio-Fantasia (a Zarabanda); Sardana; and Intermezzo e Danza Finale (a Jota). The first movement includes quotations from Zoltán Kodály's Sonata for Cello Solo, Op. 8, and the famous flute solo from Maurice Ravel's ballet Daphnis et Chloé. The sardana of the second movement is a traditional dance from Catalonia.
