Introduction and Polonaise brillante in C major, Op.3

9:20
   


Two works from very different composers: Chopin’s works for cello were few and far between, but these two straddle his compositional life: the Introduction and Polonaise was written in 1829 when he was just 19, and the cello sonata in (1845-6) is his last work published during his lifetime 9all latter works with opus numbers being published posthumously, against his wishes). Tin contrast, Saint-Saëns published a great many works for the cello (as well as works in almost every genre of the classical canon), with the Cello Sonata No 2 composed during his travels in Biskra, Algeria.

Jamie Walton and Daniel Grimwood are performers who have proven themselves in both concert and recordings such as these to be formiable and enthralling interpreters of the classical canon. This release follows their previous duo disc of Rachmaninov and Grieg cello sonatas (SIG 172): "...the musical give-and-take of these players is excellent: they seize upon the music with enthusiasm, energy and sensitivity - one can almost sense that they are keen to show us just how fine this music is ... This CD can certainly be strongly recommended. It is good to see these young artists taking up these works with such conspicuous success."  International Record Review

"...With a number of recent, highly impressice CDs, Jamie Walton has rapidly become one of my favorite cellists. His musical instincts always seem perfectly attuned to the composer’s style and intentions, and his consummate technical skill, refulgent tone, and refined taste insure a fully satisfying performance, no matter what the score in front of him. Also, I especially like the partnership between Walton & Grimwood, a seemingly ideal collaboration ... No recording I have heard... of either the Chopin or the Saint-Saëns sonatas matches this one by Walton and Grimwood for sheer perfection of execution, beauty of tone, and radiance of recorded sound."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - March/April 2012


"Jamie Walton’s mature cello timbre and perceptiveness in matters of interpretation are winningly applied to this coupling of two 19th-century sonatas ... Finely honed stylistic judgement here goes hand in hand with re-creative panache."   *****

Geoffrey Norris - The Telegraph - 9 June 2011


"Unfailingly musical performances..."
