Truls Mørk in the Brahms sonatas

Truls Mørk and Juhani Lagerspetz play Brahms like no other! The CD consists of the two cello sonatas and seven well known lieder by Brahms. The mood of the first sonata is perhaps best described as elegiac, in strong contrast to the outgoing and optimistic Sonata No. 2. The songs chosen span Brahms’ whole life as a composer, from his first opus in the genre of collections dating from his last years. Truls Mørk has tastefully let the cello replace the singing voice and given the seven songs fine transcriptions for cello and piano – a twist that corresponds with Brahms’ known predilection for the contralto voice.
