"I’ve always been a big fan of Richard Strauss and grew up with his music around me ... a particular favourite has always been his popular cello sonata from 1883 - and it has long been a part of my repertoire with my piano partner Julian Riem ..." Raphaela has this week told The Violin Channel.

“Julian and I were at a party for the parting director of the Richard Strauss Festival in 2017, when a few Strauss experts told us about the discovery of a manuscript of a 'younger twin' version of the sonata - and we both knew immediately we needed to find it for ourselves ..."

"Strauss actually composed the work in 1881 when he was just 16-years-old for a composition competition, but when he did not win, legend has it he hid the manuscript away in a drawer and it was never published ..."

"For me the original version is so wonderfully youthful and exuberant … the first movement has clear parallels to the popular 1883 version - but the other two movements are almost entirely different."
