The last of Chopin’s four sonatas – the first three being for solo piano – has become an essential work in the repertoire of… cellists, taking its place alongside the Beethoven models and the more-immediately lyrical scores of Mendelssohn. Grieg, in the central Andante molto tranquillo of his own Sonata, borrowed from the portrait of Sigurd Jorsalfar (Sigurd the Crusader), incidental music which, owing to its charm and noble bearing, deserves to be as well known as some parts of Peer Gynt. A triptych in chromatic harmonisations as free as they are appealing.
