Mendelssohn: Complete Works for Cello and Piano
Marie Macleod, Martin Sturfält

‘This is a disc on which the stance of the playing ideally matches the scale and perspective of the music. Mendelssohn’s works for cello and piano are not numerous but, with two sonatas together with the Variations concertantes and a couple of miniatures, they fit neatly onto one CD. Mendelssohn was not a cellist, but he had a brother who was, and it was for him that he wrote the Variations concertantes and the two sonatas. Given Mendelssohn’s talents as a pianist, it is understandable that in his duo music he did not exactly underplay the pianist’s virtuoso requirements, but here in the chopping and changing of priorities in the Variations concertantes Marie Macleod and Martin Sturfält weave a scintillating, tightly knit fabric, full of colour and energy. Instinctive coordination and passion are maintained in the B flat Sonata No. 1, the cello’s tonal spectrum and the piano’s variety of touch and weight astutely and expressively applied both to the music’s lyricism and to its bravura flourishes. They also possess exciting panache for the D major Sonata No. 2, a performance combining brilliance with emotional warmth.’

The Daily Telegraph



              ’The Strad Recommends’

"A persuassive account of Mendelssohn’s complete works for cello and piano."

Robin Stowell - The Strad magazine - June 2014


 "... the performances are enjoyable and invigorating. Marie Macleod has a fine way of spinning  legato line, her lyrical melodies all sound warm and appealing. And the wonderful, Bach-inspired Adagio of Op 58 is played with inspired conviction: eloquent cello recitativem and the chorale intoned with magnificent spread chords."

Duncan Druce - Gramophone magazine - June 2014
