Product Description

Review

'More than 82 minutes playing-time add to the notable musical artistry this disc contains. Superb performances, very well recorded: there is no finer coupling of these two masterpieces than this.' --Musical Opinion, November/December 2013

It will come as no surprise to followers of Yevgeny Sudbin that his contribution to this recording lifts it up from very good, to being outstanding. Not that he outshines cellist Alexander Chaushian, who displays a deeply instinctive connection with this repertoire. Performance ****(*) Recording ***** --BBC Music Magazine,Feb'12

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Russian Cello and Piano Sonatas 19 Mar 2011
Format:MP3 Download
Alex Chaushian has been around and about the London music scene for quite some time as a teacher, chamber musician and soloist. He was in Freddy Kempf's Trio, playing in some fine recordings they made for BIS. Alex and Yevgeny Subdin recently made another duo CD of Weinberg's Cello Sonatas, and are regular duo partners.

This terrific CD of the best known Russian Cello sonatas, by Rachmaninov and Shostakovich includes a surprise in the shape of Borodin's Cello Sonata. Intriguingly built from a fragment of Bach's Solo violin sonata number 1 (the fugue subject), its splendid piece, with moments of beguiling lyricism and plenty of propelling energy.

Chaushian is a subtle player, with impeccable intonation, a singing tone that's never strangled by intrusive vibrato. His slight emotional reticence in the Rachmaninov makes it a fresh experience, a classically minded account with a clear sense of direction and structure given to the music. Sudbin's partnership is thrilling yet never hogs the limelight.

The Borodin romps and sings and you'd hope, a hugely compelling performance of an unfamiliar work. The Shostakovich is a difficult work to pin down: the neoclassical elements, the lack of biting satire might some as a shock. But another performance of total conviction from Sudbin and Chaushian crowns this top-drawer recital of Russian classics.

As ever with BIS the recording is superbly balanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-have! 1 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Even if you don't go for chamber music, you should try this. I ordered it and played it at midnight, knowing I would not be disturbed. From the first chords I was hooked. This is communication in its truest form. Cellist Alexander Chaushian, and pianist Yevgeny Sudbin have collaborated in such a convincing manner that they have managed to convey a wordless stream of ideas. I was totally blown away, and I assure you I was sober all through it. (Not that my mind acted in a sober manner.)
This is what musical performance should be all about. There is not the slightest hint of artifice, such as "let's rall here," or "let's diminuendo here," etc. Neither do I ever feel that one player is making concessions for the other. Whatever they are doing, it rings true.

The sound is magnificent and I do not have a modern SACD player.
Grab this cd. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sudbin supreme, Chaushian a champion 16 Sep 2011
Format:MP3 Download
I was fortunate to attend a piano recital by Yevgeny Sudbin and found his playing remarkable. Be reassured, if you are unfamiliar with these artists, that you are listening to musicians who will become legends. The pieces are darkly dramatic, as you would expect, and the programme is full and varied. Top class music; top class musicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars russian cello sonatas 6 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love listening to the cello but there is a tendency for the record companies to issue the same cello music. This record however took me to some unfamiliar pieces. I loved it and I thought the playing by both performers was beautiful
