Pianist Yuja Wang, clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer and cellist Gautier Capuçon have earned a reputation as a “super-trio”, having given performances worldwide that reveal the instinctive, almost telepathic bond of musical communication that exists between the three players. Their first album for Deutsche Grammophon, set for release on 2 September 2022 digitally and on CD, documents that extraordinary rapport. Capturing the energy and intensity of sessions held at the Konzerthaus Dortmund in 2021, Works by Sergei Rachmaninoff & Johannes Brahms includes visionary interpretations of Rachmaninoff’s Cello Sonata Op. 19, Brahms’s Cello Sonata No.1 Op. 38 and the same composer’s Trio for piano, clarinet and cello Op. 114.

Rachmaninoff’s Cello Sonata is one of the milestones of late-Romantic chamber music. Completed in November 1901, it marked the end of the composer’s process of recovery from the breakdown he had suffered following the disastrous premiere of his First Symphony. The experience helped shape the huge emotional range and sense of triumph over adversity of a sonata that makes equally high demands on both players, raising the piano from the status of accompanist to that of soloist.
