  • Mischa Maisky cello
  • Lily Maisky piano

The leading cellist joins with his pianist daughter – a regular recital partner – for a programme centred on a major work written for Rostropovich. ‘They made music with deeply felt intimacy, in full agreement’, wrote Die Welt of the duo, ‘and with the ideal magic of sound carried by common breathing’; while the Süddeutsche Zeitung suggested that ‘one couldn’t imagine a more homogenous duo. They inspired each other, and even more often they agreed with each other unspoken’.

  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
      • 7 Variations on 'Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen' from Mozart's Die Zauberflöte WoO. 46
  • Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)
      • Cello Sonata in C Op. 65
  • Ástor Piazzolla (1921-1992)
      • Le Grand Tango
