Reference: 8.570928

Description: Like the opera above, Debussy and Ravel are the touchstones for the gorgeous, emotionally rich 32-minute cello sonata of 1925 while the 28-minute 1932 work - whose title was presumably chosen to do justice to its large-scale, extremely virtuosic writing - is in a sparer, more neo-classical style with folk music woven into the fabric - the patriotism demanded of artists by Fascism. Samuel Magill (cello), Scott Dunn (piano), Elmira Darvarova (violin).
