Steven Isserlis is not only one of our best, but one of our most adventurous cellists, always searching out neglected works as well as both personal and artistic links between composers. On this recording, the Brahms Sonatas flank less-familiar pieces by two composers intimately related to each other and also connected with Brahms: Dvor?k and his pupil and son-in-law, Josef Suk. In “Silent Woods,” arranged from one of his own piano duets, Dvor?k’s gift for capturing the sounds and atmosphere of nature beautifully evokes the forest’s repose and awakening. The Rondo contrasts a song-like, pensive, gracious theme with more vigorous, brilliant episodes; minor and major alternate and combine in the coda. Suk’s Ballade is passionate, dramatic and rhapsodic; the Serenade is a lively, charming dance, whose light-heartedness is interrupted by a startling modulation like a passing cloud. The playing throughout is superb: technically impeccable, tonally beautiful, warm and varied, deeply expressive. With the close rapport of frequent partners, Isserlis and the splendid pianist Stephen Hough engage in wonderful conversational interplay. They give Brahms’ first sonata an inward, autumnal mellowness and the second – amazingly written 20 years later – a youthful, vigorous exuberance; the sunlit Finale floats on air. One can hardly imagine a better performance. — Edith Eisler
