From the notes: "The programming of the complete Beethoven Sonata cycle has always been an agonizing process for me [Claude Frank]: 32 little pieces of cardboard were shuffled around daily, until a satisfactory result was seemingly obtained. … The main criterion was obvious: to have as much variety as possible in each concert, i.e. combine dramatic with lyrical, combine heavy with light, early with later, familiar with obscure; avoid the four sonatas in E-flat on the same program, etc., etc. But when it came to the performance it turned out that this agony had been totally unnecessary. ANY three or four Beethoven sonatas make up a varied and all-encompassing program. In fact, any ONE sonata is a musical world in itself."by Claude Frank

This collection of works for cello and piano, with Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata as its centrepiece, sees Gautier Capuçon and Frank Braley paying tribute to two towering musicians of the 20th century, Mstislav Rostropovich and Benjamin Britten, who recorded all four of the works on the programme: Schubert’s ‘Arpeggione’ Sonata, Debussy’s Cello Sonata, Schumann’s Fünf Stücke im Volkston and Britten’s own Cello Sonata in five movements, which received its first performance at the Aldeburgh Festival in 1961, two years after composer and cellist had first met. “It is a magnificent piece,” says Gautier Capuçon of the Britten, “and too rarely played as far as I’m concerned. I grew up with Britten’s children’s opera The Little Sweep, so I am well acquainted with his language.” Moreover, 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of Britten’s birth.

The fact that a pianist with such classical training as Jean-Bernard Pommier could react with so much pleasure, animation and intelligence in the execution of this sonata, proves that the jazz is not anymore a reserved district, a ghetto of the musical world. It also proves the big competence of Claude Bolling to shape a thought and an inspiration modernism of which can be assimilated by all and the marvellous aptitude of Jean-Bernard Pommier today which succeeds not only in illustrating the text brilliantly but that, by interventions where his personality is never stifled by the writing, brings new colouring and unique sensitivity.
