Notes & Reviews:

This disc draws together some lesser-known works by three of the twentieth century's greatest composers. Ravel's Violin Sonata in G major was his final chamber work, combining the influence of blues with an austere beauty. The dramatic Violin Sonata in B minor by Respighi is a greatly underrated contribution to the repertoire, while Granados's one-movement Violin Sonata perfectly captures the composer's extraordinary harmonic and melodic gifts in a seamless blend of traditional Romantic language and Spanish inflections.
