Bach - Reger: Sonatas For Cello (viol) And Piano,
Format: COMPACT DISC
Rummel, Martin; Hopkins, Elizabeth
The sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach as well as the sonatas for cello and piano by Max Reger represent lonely summit heights in their respective epochs. This justifies juxtaposing these works in an overall recording and not only encyclopedically publishing Bach or Reger lively. Recorded for this volume are the two first works of the genre by the young cellist Martin Rummel, who is now represented on Musicaphon with nine albums and who repeatedly creates “fascination with his brilliant playing“ (Kronenzeitung) and “concerts of superlatives“ ( Süddeutsche Zeitung). He is accompanied by Elizabeth Hopkins, who has already been rated as a “brilliant pianist” by the Süddeutsche Zeitung.
