Debussy Cello Sonata with Brendon Phelps

This week I had the honor of recording the Debussy cello sonata alongside Brendon Phelps as part of his entry to compete for an artist-in-residence program in Texas. Learning a masterpiece like this in a week has its pros and cons, but I have been on a total high encountering this music. It was love at first sight.

So excited to share our recording! So many emotions and backstory packed into just 13 minutes of music. This Sonata was one of Debussy’s very last compositions. It is a colorful collage of music, illustrative of his incredible understanding and synthesis of almost every compositional language that had come before him.

Sonata for Cello & Piano, L. 135 | Claude Debussy I. Prologue: Lent, sostenuto e molto risoluto II. Sérénade: Modérément animé III. Finale: Animé, léger et nerveux
