Notes & Reviews:

Tchaikovsky encouraged Georgy L'vovich Catoire to pursue a musical career, remarking that he was "gifted with a powerful creative talent". Catoire's passion for Wagner was intense and this infused his music with rich chromatic harmonies and sweeping melodies. His works for viola and piano are some of his very finest. The Violin Sonata No. 1 in B Minor, Op. 15 is a substantial and compelling piece, full of grandeur and constantly evolving rhythms. Like its successor, the raptly beautiful, single-movement Violin Sonata No. 2 in D Major, Op. 20, subtitled Poeme, it shows the influence of French Impressionism.
