Description: Casella\'s passionate music, rigorously controlled, concise and concentrated, is always refreshing, with a solid assurance of construction harking back to the classical models beloved of the composer. Elegant and masterful transcriptions of classical works by Sammartini and Clementi share the disc with the unforgettably powerful Sonata a tre which is the real find; such is the sweep and drama of this score that it belies its restricted instrumental forces. First offered in August 1997 (02-040) but unavailable for many years. Edison Trio.
