John Myerscough


Alasdair Beatson


Schubert Arpeggione Sonata

Fauré Cello Sonata no. 1 in D minor, Op. 109

Saint-Saëns Cello Sonata no. 2 in F major, Op. 123

A programme of cello favourites by two of this country's most established and finest chamber musicians.

John Myerscough won the Gold Medal and First Prize at the 2006 Royal Overseas League Music Competition. He is also the cellist of the Doric String Quartet. Their first CD was released to critical acclaim on the Wigmore Hall Live label and was Editor’s Choice in Gramophone.

…[Alasdair Beatson] shapes and weights every phrase with a caring devotion, liquid sonority and gentle cantabile. There are times here where one could scarcely credit a hammer mechanism is involved… highly sensitive playing of rare insight.
