Label: Hyperion Cat. No.: CDA67948 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

A cello recital with a difference from two maverick geniuses, displaying the fecundity of their collaboration. The world-famous cellist Steven Isserlis, one of the best-loved instrumentalists of today, joins forces with composer and pianist Thomas Ades, described by the New York Times as one of the most imposing figures in contemporary music.

This recording opens with three of Liszt's arrangements for cello and piano-the dark plangency of Isserlis's tone emphasizing their elegiac power. Janacek's Pohadka ('A Tale') is based on a story with many magical elements, and it is this particular quality which Isserlis and Ades bring out in their aerial performance. The passionate ecstasy of Faure's Cello Sonata No 2 is deeply felt, and the elemental mysterious sadness of Kurtag's miniatures leads the listener into the 21st century and to the 'title track' of this disc which Ades wrote for Isserlis himself. Lieux retrouves is a characteristically thrilling tour de force, displaying influences from all the composers previously featured and many more. The writing for the cello reaches uncharted levels of difficulty. Isserlis in his thoughtful booklet notes describes it in pictorial terms of rivers and mountains-here's Anthony Tommasini, again in the New York Times: 'The rippling figures for piano and cello spin out in crazed, cyclic riffs; the crystalline piano harmonies sound as if the wind were rustling the chimes in the pagoda; the feisty, industrialized propulsive bursts in the finale.'
