The husband-and-wife duo, co-artistic directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Music@Menlo, visit with a program of three cello sonatas that highlight the towering mastery of the German Classical and Romantic traditions. Beethoven's lyrical Op. 69 sonata is matched with Brahms' emotive Sonata in E minor, and Mendelssohn's exhilarating, ebullient Sonata in D Major.
