Beethoven: Sonata For Cello And Piano No. 4 In C Major Op. 102 No. 1 With E. Moreau On Cello And PY. Hodique On Piano
An excellent classical counterpoint work
Despite prodigious talent and world-wide fame, Beethoven had a traumatically sad ending to his life. Losing his hearing, he never heard the music that he created later in his life. Even so, the usual Beethoven compositional gusto is evident in this boisterous and sprightly work. While it rests in a minor key, the music maintains an optimistic and dedicated feel. The piano line is a wonderful example of classical counterpoint work. Enjoy the musical master’s monumental mastery.
