This disc includes two shorter pieces each by Dvorak and Suk which are very enjoyable, but the two Brahms Sonatas are the real meat of the programme. I don't always get on that well with Brahms, I must admit, but I have persevered with his chamber music and found much of it very rewarding. This is one of the best recordings I have come across. The two cello sonatas are very fine and often very beautiful works, but they do need exceptionally good playing for them to make sense to me and they get that here.
Steven Isserlis and Stephen Hough are two of the very best musicians playing today and have made dozens of brilliant recordings between them. Together, they create something really special here with magnificent musicianship, a genuine love for the music and a deep understanding between them. Part of the key to the greatness of this recording is their subtlety and refusal to engage in histrionics. They certainly have plenty of welly when it is needed (the opening of the second Sonata sounds almost orchestral at times, for example) but they never beat you over the head with grandiloquent emotional gestures and just lay the music before you in the most beautiful and expressive way. In great performances by actors, restraint and inner power is often far more effective than a lot of roaring and gesticulating and the same is true here - it's exemplary playing, I think.
As always, Hyperion's recorded sound is excellent and beautifully balanced, and the notes by Steven Isserlis show his customary combination of insight and wit. It's a terrific disc all round and very warmly recommended.
Opinions about the sonatas will vary. My review of the original issue included this paragraph:
"But how about the Brahms? The approach here is full of Gallic charm and understatement: urbane, but somewhat wanting in German-romantic Sehnsucht and visceral excitement. I much prefer the approach of Janos Starker in these works, and the way he digs into the strings when required to produce a more varied tonal pallate. For those who prefer a more heart-on-sleeve approach to Brahms, these performances might seem just a bit too reticent. Nicely played certainly: but rather lacking in gutsiness. This is Brahms glimpsed by gaslight, filtered through lace curtains in a faded Spa on a damp November afternoon. The attractive fillers leave little to be desired."
