Felix Mendelssohn's Cello Sonata No. 2 in D major, Op. 58 was composed in June 1843. The work, which was dedicated to the Russian/Polish cellist Count Mateusz Wielhorski, has four movements:
  • Allegro assai vivace
  • Allegretto scherzando
  • Adagio
  • Molto allegro e vivace
A typical performance lasts 25 minutes. Of particular interest is the Adagio, because it mirrors Mendelssohn's fascination with the music of J. S. Bach. The movement consists of a chorale in Bach's typical style, played by the piano in rich arpeggios. In between the phrases of the chorale, the cello plays recitative-like passages, which resemble the recitative of the Fantasia in the Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue, BWV 903, and quotes its final passage.
