Comberti-Cole Duo

Comberti-Cole Duo

...this is thoroughly enjoyable playing: elegantly phrased, warmly sung and, especially in the Hummel, full of crisp, quick-witted repartee.

BBC Music Magazine

"Technically....outstanding. Comberti's tone is clean and even, his phrasing impeccable."


Duo - Instrumental


  • Maggie Cole - Fortepiano
  • Sebastian Comberti - Cello


Their explorations of many works by contemporaries of Beethoven have unearthed many rarely heard gems. Programmes are always introduced by the players with readings from contemporary writings, and the background to the instruments and repertoire being performed.


Sebastian Comberti and Maggie Cole have played together for many years as members of Trio Goya (also a DWAM artist). Sonatas for cello and fortepiano have long featured on their programmes, and their CD Mozartiana was released in 2004 to critical acclaim. Playing on instruments of the period, using gut strings, a fortepiano by Paul McNulty after a 1795 Anton Walter instrument, and a wealth of experience in historical performance practice, their repertoire encompasses late 18th and early 19th Century works for cello and fortepiano, from the dawn of the duo-sonata age.
