Description: Grey’s entire 28-minute sonata, written in 1986 for the Tertis pupil Roger Chase, consists of a ‘theme’ with four variations. The remarkable structure of the piece fits perfectly with the mood swings in Grey’s music: from intensely lyrical to brilliant and virtuoso, from fierce and aggressive to ethereal and enchanting. Gorb’s short pieces are attractive and quite approachable, the former being a transcription of a movement from his Viola Concerto. Karin Dolman (viola), Caecilia Boschman (piano).
