Glorious lyricism from a compelling pairing in Myaskovsky and Rachmaninov


'The work has so many ingredients that should guarantee it instant appeal – a gloriously lyrical melody that opens and closes the sonata and some finely wrought material with exciting and dynamic musical interaction between cello and piano. Bruno Philippe inflects the music with great fervour, strongly supported by Jérôme Ducros’s impressive mastery of the demanding piano part and an admirably balanced recording.’
