Charles-Valentin Alkan’s neglected Sonate de concert is the most ambitious work for cello and piano of the Romantic period. Alkan wrote this monumental, virtuosic piece for the great cellist Auguste-Joseph Franchomme. It was for the same musician that Chopin composed at the end of his life his Sonata for cello and piano, a crepuscular, tormented work.
