It is well known that Chopin almost exclusively wrote works for solo piano. Only for the cello did he make some exceptions: two works – a Polonaise brillante and the Duo Concertant (HN 788) were written for cello and piano; and he also let the cello express itself in his Piano Trio op. 8 (HN 1068). Finally; towards the end of his life; he honored the low-stringed instrument with a grand; four-movement Sonata in G minor. Proof that it was anything but child's play is provided by the extensive sketch material. Chopin himself claimed: “With my cello sonata; I am now satisfied and now dissatisfied. I toss it into the corner; then pick it up again.” Today we only have an inkling about this struggle. The sonata; with its famous melodic Largo movement; is now firmly embedded in the canon of cello literature.
