Description: The 1923 sonata is a gorgeous piece which glows here and there with French Impressionism - that ecstatic quality one finds now and then in Ravel, for example - while the late (1945) quintet is a return to the values of late Romantic tonality in the face of the post-war avant-garde. The more Alfano you hear, the more you realize he was a significant 20th century composer. Elmira Darvarova (violin), Scott Dunn (piano), Mary Ann Mumm (violin), Craig Mumm (viola), Samuel Magill (cello).
