William Pleeth (cello) Margaret Good (piano)
Of Beethoven's five sonatas for cello and piano, the first two, comprising his Op. 5, were composed during his visit to Berlin in 1796, and dedicated to King Frederick William II of Prussia, who was himself an accomplished cellist. Beethoven played the two sonatas at the Prussian court with Duport, the celebrated French cellist, and received from the King a box of louis d'or, which Beethoven afterwards proudly described as ' no ordinary box, but one of the kind usually presented to ambassadors.' Each sonata consists of two movements, the first of which has a slow introduction. The opening of No. i in F is directed to be played Adagio sostenuto, and this leads to an Allegro movement; a Rondo follows, marked Allegro vivace.
