Brahms sadness exposed 18 Dec 2000
By "danielinyaracuy" - Published on 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.

Beautiful duo playing with a young Isserlis 5 Nov 2013
By RLB - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.
