Product Notes

In the spring of 2019, Christoph Croise scored a breakthrough with his critically acclaimed recording of Haydn's Cello Concertos. With The Russian Album, he turns his attention to two towering 20th century masterpieces, Sergei Rachmaninoff's early, eloquent and emotional Sonata for Cello and Piano, Op. 19, and Dmitri Shostakovich's D minor Sonata for Cello and Piano Op. 40. The latter work's finale featured what would become the composer's signature style of caricature and irony that proved too provocative to the Stalinist regime. Croise also offers two "encores"- his own transcriptions of the March from Sergei Prokofiev's propulsive opera The Love for Three Oranges, and Rodion Shchedrin's flamboyant In the Style of Albeniz- and a bonus track by his compatriot, the Swiss cellist and composer Thomas Demenga, New York Honk, a humorous homage to the Big Apple's cacophonous traffic noises. "a recording teeming with sparkle and relentless in fizz." (Gramophone)
