About the show

Works for cello and piano performed by cellist Wendy Warner and pianist Irina Nuzova.Beethoven: Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, Op. 5, No. 2Beethoven: Cello Sonata No. 1 in F Major, Op. 5, No. 1On today’s podcast, we’ll hear not just Beethoven’s first cello sonatas, but indeed (it is widely agreed) the very first cello sonatas ever written.Beethoven’s first and second sonatas for cello and piano constitute his opus 5, an early work.

The two were written and premiered right around the same time, so the distinction is somewhat arbitrary; both very much inhabit the same musical universe.Beethoven himself was at the piano for the premiere of the piece at the royal court in Berlin in 1796. The sonatas were dedicated to King Friedrich II, an enthusiastic amateur cellist for whom Mozart and Haydn has also written quartets. Still, Beethoven clearly gives the piano pride of place in these sonatas. W
