Cellist Nicolas Altstaedt, called “compelling” (The New York Times) and praised for his “muscular playing” (The Guardian), partners with Fazil Say, one of the most notable pianist-composers of our day. Two 20th-century cello sonatas are featured. Debussy’s is brief but beautiful, while Shostakovich’s has one of his trademark sardonic scherzos, a melancholy Largo, and impish finale. There’s also colorful music by Janáček inspired by a Russo-Turkish fairy tale, and Say’s evocative portrait of the cities on the Anatolian peninsula of his native Turkey.

Part of Salon Encores.
