 David Geringas Soloist


Beethoven was the first great composer of cello sonatas in the Romantic style, and he remained really the only one until Brahms wrote two at the end of the 19th century. Few composers have attempted to compose sonatas for cello and piano, owing to the difficulties of balance between the two instruments, though the exceptions have been notable, and beautiful. Beethoven’s works for Cello and piano come from each of his three stylistic periods - the very early Sonatas Op. 5 represent Beethoven’s move away from the classical style of Haydn and Mozart; the popular Sonata in A Major, Op. 69 stands firmly rooted in Beethoven’s Middle Period and shares it’s sweeping melodic lines with those in "Eroica" and the "Harp" String Quartet, while the Sonatas Op. 102 already point to elliptical language of the late String Quartets.

David Geringas is one of the most versatile musicians of our time. Active as both cellist and conductor, Geringas has an unusually broad repertoire from the early baroque to the latest avant garde. He was the first musician to play the works of many Russian and Lithuanian avant garde composers in the West and many composers dedicated works to him. For his worldwide engagement for Lithuanian music and its composers he was awarded highest distinctions of his country. In October 2006 the President of the Federal Republic of Germany Horst Köhler awarded the "Verdienstkreuz 1. Klasse des Verdienstordens der Bundesrepublik Deutschland" (Federal Cross of Merit) to David Geringas for his over all efforts as musician and German Cultural Ambassador to the world music scene.
