“Moser and Beatson prove that this is the case, and the former’s use of vibrato as a colour rather than a habit greatly illuminates the piece’s inherent beauty”.
”Fanny & Fanny Mendelssohn – Works for Cello and Piano” with Johannes Moser and Alasdair Beatson has been reviewed on Gramophone – Awards 2019 Edition! Read a glimpse of the review below!
” The Variations concertantes, on the other hand, are a delight. The main theme is given a nice sweep, the piano’s transparency coming into its own in the first variation, while the two players reveal the limpidity of Var 2 and sound effortlessly virtuoso in the third and fourth. The pizzicato of Var 5 comes through the texture well, with Beatson relishing the nutty colours of the bass register.”
