Beethoven Cello & Piano Sonata Performance July 25, 2011 MP3

My cellist friend Abraham Aragundi invited me to perform with him the first movement of Beethoven’s Cello and Piano Sonata in G Minor, Op. 5, No. 2 for his music history class at Foothill College. This particular sonata was composed by Beethoven in Berlin at the age of 26. It’s a challenging piece to play and the interaction of the instruments is very exciting. It was great fun working up the sonata with such a talented and inspiring musician such as Abraham. A special thanks to Dr. Robert Hartwell for inviting us into his classroom!
