Description: Budget versions of three sonatas which appeared on BIS in 2007. The op. 21 sonata, from 1945, is in two movements, the first of which is slow and marked by elements of Jewish music and the second a toccata-like movement with a calmer middle section. The second (1959) was written for Rostropovich as were the two solo sonatas here. Dmitry Yablonsky (cello), Hsin-Ni Liu (piano).
