Notes & Reviews:

The year 2006 marks the centenary of the birth of Dmitri Shostakovich, one of the 20th century's most beloved, yet enigmatic, composers. The mystery and controversy that enveloped a considerable part of his life have pursued him even after his death in 1975. The two sonatas recorded here were written forty-one years apart. The cello sonata is a youthful work, written when the composer was twenty-four, while the viola sonata (transcribed here for cello) was his last piece, composed barely a month prior to his death. Carlos Prieto has made his own transcription for cello of the Shostakovich Viola Sonata, which he performs here.
