Renowned cellist Daniil Shafran and pianist Anton Ginsburg perform sonatas for cello and piano by Beethoven.

Daniil Shafran (1923-1997) was one of the world’s best known concert cellists for many years. Many musicians consider him one of the most interesting phenomena of not only cello performing art but also the entire music culture of the 20th century. As many researchers note, Shafran's performance combined intellect and poetic inspiration, an impeccable taste and technique, in-depth interpretation of the author’s idea and originality in revealing the contents of works.

Anton Ginsburg (1930-2002) was an outstanding pianist, pupil of Heinrich Neuhaus and winner of the Prague Spring International Competition. He was best known as an ensemble musician performing with Daniil Shafran, Mikhael Khomitzer and Igor Oistrakh. Many critics noted the pianist’s creative initiatives, temperament and keen musicality.

"Daniil Shafran is one of the highest level cellists by his performing manner, by his musical inclinations, and by the wealth and diversity of musical shades." - Carlo Zecchi

"The Russian cellist extraordinaire, Daniil Shafran whimsical, tripping, intense, sensual, refined and intelligent... a rich source of fascination and stimulation for anyone with an open musical mind. One thing’s for sure: no one plays this music quite like Shafran did." - The Gramophone Magazine
