At the beginning of the 1870s, Saint-Saens showed a particular fondness for the violoncello. He completed his first cello sonata in December 1872, immediately after finishing his first cello concerto (see HN 711). The sonata is strongly reminiscent of Beethoven, not only due to the key of c minor but also predominantly on account of its gripping dramatic art. The exceptional position of this demanding, in parts highly virtuosic sonata was quickly recognised by the public and critics and so the work soon found its way into concert repertoire. Our Urtext edition takes all surviving sources into account - for the first time ever. Pascal Roge and David Geringas kindly provided the markings for the piano and cello parts.
