OUT NOW | Cellist Raphaela Gromes' New CD: 'Richard Strauss Cello Sonatas' [LISTEN]

Sony Records has announced the release of violinist Raphaela Gromes' New Album: 'Richard Strauss Cello Sonatas'

Sony Classical has announced the release of German cellist Raphaela Gromes' new album: 'Richard Strauss Cello Sonatas'.

Recorded with pianist Julian Riem, the disc features Richard Strauss' Cello Sonata in F Major Op. 6 - coupled with the world premiere recording of the previously unknown, original first version of the work from 1881.

"Richard Strauss' Cello & Piano Sonata Op. 6 has been an important part of Julian and I's concert repertoire since 2012, so when we found out that there was an earlier unknown version of the sonata, that is virtually completely different to the one that cellists know and love, we knew immediately we wanted to find it and explore it ..." Raphaela has told The Violin Channel.

"We've recorded both the original 1881 and standard 1883 versions of the Sonata side by side so that listeners can really appreciate the major differences ... and hopefully cellists will fall in love with the early version as much as we have - and add it to their repertoire," she has said.
