Robin Michael (cello)
Daniel Tong (piano)

Cellist Robin Michael and pianist Daniel Tong present a fascinating new recording of the two sonatas for cello and piano by Johannes Brahms along with Robert Schumann's distinctive Fünf Stücke im Volkston.

Taking a historically informed approach, this unique-sounding performance of these mainstays of the repertoire gives a captivating insight into the chamber music sound world of the late-nineteenth century, performed on an 1897 Blüthner boudoir grand piano thought to have been played by and selected by Brahms himself from the maker's factory, and a cello with gut strings.

Album Booklet (PDF)

'This is one of those rewarding recordings that makes you totally reassess music from the mainstream repertoire. Robin Michael’s gut-strung cello is softly sonorous, a perfect match for Daniel Tong’s masterly pianism on an 1897 Blüthner.'
