Neither Sergei Rachmaninoff nor Dmitri Shostakovich were cellists. Yet both of them composed a sonata - but one - for an instrument whose repertory grew increasingly rich in the course of the nineteenth century. On the other hand, they were both wonderful orchestral writers and could compose in various wind and string instruments techniques, exploiting their potentials of virtuosity and expressivity. Rachmaninoff’s chamber music is not well known, overshadowed by the impressive corpus of his keyboard works. However, aside from the few early drawing-room pages devoted to pieces for violin and piano or string quatuors, there are two indisputable masterpieces that are among the very greatest in the composer’s production: the Elegiac Trio op. 9 dated 1893 and then this Sonata for cello and piano that he began during the summer of 1901.
