Jirí Bárta (*1964) is one of the top cellists of his generation and his busy concert career has included collaborations with leading musicians and orchestras around the world. He also boasts an extensive recording catalogue of some thirty solo and chamber albums and is the founder and artistic director of the International Music Festival Kutná Hora. Terezie Fialová (*1984) is one of the most talented young Czech pianists and a sought-after chamber partner of many leading Czech and international soloists. Both Bárta and Fialová are laureates of various international awards. In this new album, they bring a studio recording and a focused and riveting performance of Beethoven’s complete sonatas for piano and cello. As they say of the album’s origin, it was, “paradoxically, precisely thanks to the many months of a stalled concert life that we found the time to get together and withdraw into the studio in order to record this wonderful and rewarding music by Ludwig van Beethoven.”
