Allievo di Martin Berteau, fondatore della scuola francese di violoncello, e fratello maggiore di Jean-Louis, il violoncellista cui si attribuisce il merito di aver dato inizio alla moderna scuola, Jean-Pierre Duport è figura di grande importanza nel panorama musicale europeo pre-romantico. Virtuoso eccezionale, dopo una fortunata carriera concertistica, approda a Berlino, dove diviene il sovrintendente alla musica reale, incontrando i maggiori musicisti dell’epoca, tra cui Mozart, che compose per il suo violoncello i celebri Quartetti Prussiani, e Beethoven, che al suo virtuosismo offrì le due Sonate op.5. Questa incisione riunisce due sonate da ognuno dei quattro libri per violoncello e Basso, opere che sono l’intera produzione musicale della sua vita.
