Format: Audio CD
This recording turned out to be an ever so slight disappointment -- let me see if I can explain what was missing for me. The first piece is Cesar Franck's "Sonata Pour Violon Et Piano En La Majeur" (transcribed for cello). Ms. Gastinel's cello is warm and somber, but from the start of the first movement it is obvious that this interpretation is going to be somewhat broody - and in the second movement there is a whirlwind of emotion that, while present, doesn't quite seem to ring true. It's as if there is something missing and the emotion is being forced. Ms. Desert's piano provides fine accompaniment here, but the two don't quite seem to be on the same emotional page. The third movement seems just a tad slow, but ends also ends broodingly, so the piece is played consistently in this regard. The last movement, while initially more spritely, does not strike the same emotional tone for me as the other three movements. I found this to be sufficiently disturbing in a manner not consistent with what I feel was the intention of the work as a whole.

The second piece is Claude Debussy's "Sonate Pour Violoncelle Et Piano En Re Mineur". My feelings here are similar to the Franck, in that the cello and piano don't quite seem to be on the same emotional page - there is a little lag here, a pause there, as well as a difference of brightness in tone that does not quite evoke an even emotional response. It is tantalizingly close to being something really special, but the pacing and subtle conversational differences just don't quite get it done for me.

The last piece is Poulenc's "Sonata Pour Piano Et Violoncelle".
