Brahms and Mendellsohn; Pӓrt and Messiaen, Songs for Cello and Piano 
This recital explores two contrasting pairs of composers – Brahms and Mendellsohn, two giants of German Romanticism, and Messiaen and Pӓrt, two devout 20th century composers whose music searches for transcendence and God. Throughout the different time periods, we see how the cello has been used as a singing voice – from the profound slow movement of Brahms 2nd cello sonata, through the beautifully lyrical Mendellsohn pieces, to Messiaen and Berkeley’s ‘songs’ for cello.
