Description: Since Feinberg’s and Weinberg’s sonatas are getting multiple recording these days, we offer this primarily for the Sviridov, a three-movement, 16-minute work from 1944 in which the macabre and somber manifestations of wartime are reflected in the composer’s modern musical language, expressive dissonant harmony and dramatic emotional tension. Anastasia Yasko (piano).
