Notes & Reviews:

SOMM is well known for its promotion of British music, and its catalog boasts many world premiere recordings. This impressive double disc is no exception, featuring the well-loved Cello Sonatas of Bridge, Delius, Ireland, and Rubbra as well as two world premieres - the Cello Sonatas by Rebecca Clarke (1919), and Ivor Keys (1960). Clarke was Stanford's first female pupil at RCM and became a professional violist, having taken lessons with Lionel Tertis. Listening to her Sonata, described as sensuous, Bacchanalian, intoxicating, and languid by turns, reminds us that she felt closest to the music of both Debussy and Ravel. Ivor Keys was organ scholar at Christ Church, Oxford, and an accomplished musician who made his career as an academic at the Universities of Belfast. Cellist Alexander Baillie is recognized as one of the finest musicians of his generation; his teachers were Fournier, Rostropovich, du Pre, and William Pleeth.
