As part of his 70th birthday celebrations, Ralph Kirshbaum is joined again by the inspirational Shai Wosner to perform Beethoven’s heart-warming late Cello Sonatas, exquisitely crafted pieces dedicated to his close friend, Countess Anna Maria Erdödy.

They also explore the composer’s early Variations on a Theme from Judas Maccabaeus and the Cello Sonata in F, a strikingly original product of Beethoven’s triumphant concert tour to Berlin in 1796.
