Summary:

Principal cellist of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Jonathan Aasgaard is an equally distinguished soloist as well as a notable arranger, talents in evidence on his previous AVIE release, From Jewish Life (AV 2149) on which he solos in Bloch’s Schelomo and Bruch’s Kol Nidrei, and his own arrangement of Bloch’s Prayer. His new 2-CD set of the complete works for cello and piano by Brahms includes the composer’s Sonatas as well as arrangements of the popular Hungarian Dances, a selection of Lieder, the First Violin Sonata, and the Andante from his Second Piano Concerto. His superb partner is pianist Martin Roscoe.
