About Edinburgh International Festival: Jean-Guihen Queyras and Alexander Melnikov
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
An internationally respected and well-established musical partnership, the French cellist and Russian pianist tackle the late sonatas of Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov.
Jean-Guihen Queyras | Cello
Alexander Melnikov | Piano
Beethoven | Cello Sonata in D Op 102 No 2
Chopin | Cello Sonata
Rachmaninov | Cello Sonata
Both respected international soloists in their own rights, French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras and Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov are also a well-established musical partnership and a much-admired one. They’ve performed and recorded Beethoven’s complete music for cello and piano to enormous acclaim, their passionate playing and perceptive insights a natural match.
It’s Beethoven that opens their rich International Festival recital: the D major Cello Sonata, Op 102 No 2, is a visionary late work, as compelling as it is intimate. They complete their sumptuous concert with two achingly Romantic cello sonatas, also from late in their composers’ careers: Chopin’s tender work, and Rachmaninov’s remarkably intense piece, which brings cello and piano together in an equal partnership of flamboyance and virtuosity.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Jean-Guihen Queyras and Alexander Melnikov are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
