Steven Isserlis (cello) & Alexander Melnikov (piano)
We are proud that the JdP’s featured artist, Steven Isserlis, chose our venue for his first-ever complete cycle of the Bach Cello Suites in 2016. In this intriguing recital programme, Steven programmes together the work of four legendary Russian composer-pianists, with two beguiling recent works for cello and piano by Mikhail Pletnev and Evgeny Kissin forming a lyrical counterpart to the cello sonatas of Shostakovich and Rachmaninov.
Shostakovich Cello Sonata
Pletnev Cello Sonata
Kissin Sonata-Ballade for cello and piano
Rachmaninov Cello Sonata
