Sonata for cello and piano

composer
1940/8

 
The Sonata for cello and piano was sketched in 1940 but not completed until 1948. It was first played in the Salle Gaveau in Paris on 18 May 1949 by the composer and the joint dedicatee, Pierre Fournier, who also played a significant role in the writing of the cello part. This is most evident in the central Cavatine and dance-like Ballabile, but in all four movements the piano usually announces and the cello decorates the essential line.

Esquissée en 1940, la Sonate pour violoncelle et piano fut achevée seulement en 1948 et créée à la Salle Gaveau (Paris), le 18 mai 1949, par le compositeur et le dédicataire, Pierre Fournier, qui joua également un rôle important dans l’écriture de la partie de violoncelle. Ce qui transparaît surtout dans la Cavatine centrale et le Ballabile dansant, mais, dans l’ensemble des quatre mouvements, le piano fait généralement l’annonce, tandis que le violoncelle orne la ligne principale.

Die Sonate für Cello und Klavier wurde 1940 skizziert, aber erst 1948 fertiggestellt. Ihre Uraufführung am 18. Mai 1949 im Salle Gaveau in Paris besorgten der Komponist und Pierre Fournier, einer der Adressaten der Widmung, der außerdem bei der Ausführung des Celloparts eine wesentliche Rolle gespielt hatte. Das macht sich am deutlichsten in der zentralen Cavatine und im tänzerischen Ballabile bemerkbar, doch hat in allen vier Sätzen das Klavier in der Regel Vorrang, während das Cello die Hauptstimme verziert.
