Chopin: Cello Sonata in G Minor, Op. 65: III. Largo

1846: the last summer that Chopin was to spend on George Sand’s estate at Nohant, where he had composed or completed the core of his oeuvre over a period of seven years. That summer saw the birth of his last miniatures and of some more ambitious pieces: the Barcarolle, the Nocturnes op.62a, and of course the Cello Sonata, the very last work published in his lifetime. Pascal Amoyel and Emmanuelle Bertrand plunge us into the heart of those few months before the couple’s separation; the ailing Chopin did not yet know that he was leaving his musical testament.
