GEORGES ONSLOW (1784-1853): 3 Cello Sonatas, Op. 16.
Catalogue Number: 03O039
Description: When these pieces (with Haydn and Beethoven still the major influences) were published in 1819, they were titled just Duos and performers were given the option of playing them on violin, viola or cello. The viola version came out on Pierre Verany in 1996 and we offered the violin version four years ago (02K051) on Challenge Classics on period instruments. So, if you want to hit the trifecta, here's a highly regarded German cellist (modern instruments, of course). Maria Kliegel (cello), Nina Tichman (piano).
