Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • This double-disc set of new recordings includes the world premier recording of Cello Sonata in A, composed by Britten as a boy of 13 years of age.
  • A culminating release in celebration of Britten's centenary.
  • The booklet's liner notes were written by the artists.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
It's fitting that the late Alexander Ivashkin's valedictory recording is a premiere of a piece many didn't know existed...Britten was always Ivashkin's great love and he has done the cello fraternity a great service by preparing a performing edition of the composer's very first Sonata for Cello...It's fascinating to see how completely [Britten's] absorbed classical forms and, above all, the voice of Schubert.
