Thirty-two years separate the oldest and most recent compositions on this album of selected works for cello and piano, covering a broad spectrum of Doppelbauerís artistic achievement. Extending from fateful weightiness to elegiac narrative and tender restraint, there is an impressive range of emotion in the Fantasie that forms the first movement of the Sonata for Cello and Piano WV570, followed by a lively Rondo full of contrasts and a lyrical, melancholy Fuga with a reflective ending. The approach is quite different in the Prelude and Fugue WV 511, its harmonic patterns reminiscent of the organ, with a vigorous, almost Classical opening and a fugue ending fortissimo in a major key. The Three Sonatas for solo cello WV 559 explore the entire register of the cello and impose great technical demands on the performer.
