This edition of Beethoven's Cello music is amongst the very best I have heard. I think much of this titan's music is capable of giving us hope; however, in this field, the cello sonatas come up trumps! They are unrivaled depictions of man attaining his goals, climbing ever more sublime peaks as he shouts for joy upon the summit. And Baillie and Lisney recognise this - indeed realise this - to the utmost degree; they form a very complimentary pair, and with each instrument seem to do battle against each other as well as form a dynamic whole, which is a quite a task. Beethoven's love of exploration and explosiveness are captured with about as much gusto as is possible in smaller chamber works; they excel in their poetry.

The piano is light and carefree, as if the yin of the two; the cello, the darker yang. There is constant conversation between the two creating a gripping discourse. Indeed, the two seem to finish each others' sentences with alternate instruments craving the joyous, wistful voice. The dexterity of the performers often verges on the frivolous, producing a wonderful aspect to the music, as if not taking itself too seriously and they seem to relish in this. They are clearly musicians in their element and adore this lighter side of Beethoven.

There is certainly an evanescent quality to this music and maybe even some tongue in cheek. Baillie and Lisney work wonderfully together to create a truly believable tapestry of classical dialogue of music which is equally sublime, compelling, fun and challenging! The previous reviewer finds the audience's applause unappealing but to me it merely reinforces the freshness and vitality of the performance and the music itself. For this price, it is a product whose appeal is matched by its value!

Lovely, heartfelt performances of these works. If, like me, you tend to react against live performances that retain large amounts of audience applause on the disc, then avoid.
