Jonah Kim, one of America's finest young cellists, steps out in this wide-ranging program, joined by esteemed collaborative pianist Robert Koenig. Kim begins the program with a Mount Everest for cellists, the Sonata for Solo Cello by Zoltán Kodály. Kim has had a lifelong affection for the work, and delivers a thrilling performance. The album's title work, Approaching Autumn, is an atmospheric and adventurous duo in one movement. Kim and Koenig weave their way poetically through Mark Abel's enchanting creation, in its premiere recording. The final offering is Edvard Grieg's beloved 19th century masterpiece, the Sonata for Cello and Piano, which has attracted such luminaries as Pablo Casals, Artur Rubinstein, Mstislav Rostropovich and Sviatoslav Richter, to perform it live.
