    And one a bit more from later time:

    I was thinking of Schubert only! Hoping to hear other arrangements than the well known Arpeggione sonata (which is one of my favorite pieces). I especially like lieder played on cello/piano but only know the 3 albums I posted.

    AFAIK Schubert didn't write any music for cello and piano?

    Schubert's "Arpeggione Sonata" was written for an instrument called the arpeggione that was in fashion for a short period in the 19th century. The arpeggione is like a bass viola da gamba played with a bow, it has six-strings tuned like a guitar. Schubert's "Arpeggione sonata" was written for this instrument, but is nowadays usually played on cello.

    If you want Romantic cello music for cello and piano maybe you should try these composers: Schumann, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Grieg, Brahms and Rachmaninov.

    It's got to be Schubert! I'm well aware of the fact that he never wrote for cello, but some lieder sound great without text. I've tried all the composers you mention, even Liszt (he didn't write so much for the combination did he?). I really like a cello singing songs!

    No, you are right: Liszt didn't write much for cello - I think all of his cello music is included here:
