Beautiful duo playing with a young Isserlis
2013年11月5日 - (Amazon.com)
Isserlis played & recorded these (with acclaimed Peter Evans on piano) on his gut string cello 25 years ago; during the golden years of the compact disc. Recently, re-recorded with Stephen Hough (I haven't hear that disc) - he knows these pieces well. The recording (Hyperion) is as good as anything, the performances are just ideal. Robust, tuneful, Brahmsian in nature, autumnal and restless. Brahms two Cello Sonatas belong in everyone's collection and this disc is easy to recommend. So perhaps a selection of a metal string cello recording by a favorite cellist and this natural gut string cello by a young Isserlis to round out your Brahms chamber discs.

Isserlys is one of the best cellists one can find and this another of his remarkable recordings. Great, just great.
Easily surpasses the later Isserlis-Hough duo also on Hyperion

This is a splendid recording in every respect. Easily surpasses the later Isserlis-Hough duo also on Hyperion.
Brahms sadness exposed
2000年12月18日 - (Amazon.com)
Brahms was an introspective composer. A lot of his music drips of sadness. Yet, no matter how apparently sad, it always has a glimmer of hope, or at least of consolation. If you want to experience it I cannot think of a better place to try than his cello sonatas. And certainly Steven Isserlis gives a magistral performance here. I remember that the first time I heard it, it was playing in a used bookstore in Seattle. Although I was quite familiar with the piece, it was as if I were hearing it for the first time. That good. Well, you could say that Seattle grey skies had something to do with it. I think not. Ever since that experience no other version I heard came close to express that Brahms melancholy, that meditation on years gone. And the recording quality is quite good, with an excellent piano in Peter Evans. A must.
