About the album

Onvergelijkbare uitvoeringen van meesterlijke sonates van Brahms
Dit album bevat schitterende opnames van de enige twee sonates voor cello en piano die Brahms heeft nagelaten. Godfried Hoogeveen en Frédéric Meinders hebben deze werken met veel bijval van het publiek en de critici uitgevoerd in vele beroemde muziekcentra, en hun interpretaties van deze meesterwerken zullen de vergelijking met welke andere uitvoering dan ook weerstaan. Ook al is er veel concurrentie in de catalogus, deze opnames zullen zeker een eigen plek vinden.

Cellist Godfried Hoogeveen studeerde onder Tibor de Machula aan het Conservatorium van Amsterdam, waar hij cum laude afstudeerde. Vervolgens zette hij zijn studie voort bij de legendarische Gregor Piatigorsky aan de University of Southern California. Daarna begon hij met niet minder dan 35 celloconcerten in zijn repertoire aan een indrukwekkende carrière die hem naar alle hoeken van de wereld bracht. Het hedendaagse repertoire neemt ook een belangrijke plaats binnen zijn werk in, en hij introduceerde de celloconcerten van Guida en Dutilleux in Nederland.

Pianist Frédéric Meinders studeerde in Den Haag, sloot zijn studie af bij Nikita Magaloff, en trad door heel Europa, Noord- en Zuid-Amerika, het Midden-Oosten en de voormalige Oostbloklanden op in concerten. Hij is ook zeer gewild als begaafde uitvoerende van kamermuziek.

Johannes Brahms

Johannes Brahms was a German composer and pianist. Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria. His reputation and status as a composer is such that he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the 'Three Bs' of music, a comment originally made by the nineteenth-century conductor Hans von Bülow.   Brahms composed for symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles, piano, organ, and voice and chorus. A virtuoso pianist, he premiered many of his own works.

Johannes Brahms was a German composer and pianist. Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria. His reputation and status as a composer is such that he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the "Three Bs" of music, a comment originally made by the nineteenth-century conductor Hans von Bülow.
Brahms composed for symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles, piano, organ, and voice and chorus. A virtuoso pianist, he premiered many of his own works. He worked with some of the leading performers of his time, including the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim (the three were close friends). Many of his works have become staples of the modern concert repertoire. Brahms, an uncompromising perfectionist, destroyed some of his works and left others unpublished.
Brahms has been considered, by his contemporaries and by later writers, as both a traditionalist and an innovator. His music is firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters. While many contemporaries found his music too academic, his contribution and craftsmanship have been admired by subsequent figures as diverse as Arnold Schoenberg and Edward Elgar. The diligent, highly constructed nature of Brahms's works was a starting point and an inspiration for a generation of composers. Within his meticulous structures is embedded, however, a highly romantic nature.
