Osostowicz and Dussek make out the strongest imaginable case for Rubbra’s neglected violin works. Their empathetic rapport generates performances of flawless integrity and insight, and one wonders why Rubbra’s superb Third Sonata, particularly, hasn’t secured a niche in the repertory. Recommended. Michael Jameson
