Catalogue Number: 08U005
Label: Toccata Classics
Reference: TOCC 0327
Description: The only sizeable work is the 21-minute sonata from 1957-8, a piece that shouldn’t have had to wait until now for its first recording, which has a range and versatility that, understandably, can only be glimpsed in the shorter pieces, some of which are of concert difficulty (Orientalia, the suite and the Concert Piece, the latter of which found its way into the later sonata’s finale). Sergey Kostylev (violin), Olga Solovieva (piano).
