“a pianist of heart, intellect and fabulous technical resources”

— Fanfare

J.S. Bach: Suite No. 1 in G Major for Solo Cello
Schnittke: Sonata No. 1 for Cello and Piano
Mahler: Adagietto from Symphony No. 5
Beethoven: Sonata in C Major, Op. 102, No. 1

Longtime collaborators Sonia Wieder-Atherton and Sarah Rothenberg, both known for their expressive artistry and highly original programming, come together in this fascinating duo recital exploring extremes of expression, in which Beethoven’s C Major Sonata, Op. 102, No. 1, and Alfred Schnittke’s Sonata No. 1 for Cello and Piano form the centerpieces.

“The soulful expressivity of the cello reaches out to us from a deep, interior space where words do not yet exist. In the repertoire chosen for tonight’s recital, it is this deep expressivity that takes center stage — from Bach’s peerless eloquence to Alfred Schnittke’s extremes of emotion, Mahler’s songful Adagietto and Beethoven’s lyrical late Sonata in C Major.” — Sarah Rothenberg

“From the baroque to the contemporary, whenever Sonia Wieder-Atherton takes on a challenge it is like diving body and soul into the ocean of captive sounds we call music.” – Le Monde
