Benedict Kloeckner & Anna Fedorova. Chopin, Franck: Cello Sonatas. Digital Booklet: Chopin, Franck: Cello Sonatas.
By Benedict Kloeckner, Anna Fedorova. 1. Cello Sonata in G Minor, Op. 65: I. Allegro moderato - Frédéric Chopin, 15:000:30. 2. 65: II. Scherzo - Frédéric Chopin, 4:510:30. 3. 65: III. Largo - Frédéric Chopin
In Franck's sonata, the young cellist Kloeckner gets the chance to demonstrate his exceptionally warm and expressive tone. The dark middle movements resemble furious eruptions, while the outer movements sound gallant and genteel. The two musicians infuse Chopin's somewhat conventional sonata with youthful energy; the results are thrilling. Frédéric Chopin, César Franck. Anna Fedorova, Benedict Kloeckner.
New CD with Anna Fedorova. Franck/ Chopin Cello/Piano Sonatas. With an unusual but intelligent compiled program (cello sonatas by Richard Straus, Francis Poulenc, and Wolfgang Rihm), the young cellist Benedict Kloeckner presented together with his experienced companion, José Gallardo, on Genuin. Settled in expression between rousing drive and soulful lyricism, a dialogue-rich, color-varied program is concluded that the cellist as technically well versed and highly musical performer identifies (GEN 14313).
Frédéric Chopin composed three piano sonatas, two being published in his lifetime, one posthumously. They are often considered to be among Chopin's hardest piano compositions both musically and technically. They cover a period of time from 1828 to 1844, reflecting Chopin's style changes. Chopin composed this piano sonata in 1828, when he was still studying with Józef Elsner, to whom the sonata was dedicated.

Benedict Kloeckner cello Anna Fedorova piano. Two full blooded romantic Cello Sonatas, each with its own peculiar history and relationship to the instrument. Frédéric Chopin almost exclusively wrote for the piano. His last published work however was the Cello Sonata Op. 65, written for his close friend and cellist Auguste Franchomme. Coincidentally legend has it (as orally testified by Pablo Casals) that Cesar Franck composed his famous Violin Sonata for violin or cello, and that a version for cello existed in Franck’s hand, written fo. uguste Franchomme.
