Description: Although the cello version of Franck’s famous violin sonata is common on disc nowadays, Godard’s 32-minute sonata from 1887, not otherwise available, is shot through with vivid coloring of the cello’s voice in shifting registers and Godard’s penchant for the operatic. Corinne Morris (cello), Petr Limonov (piano).
