Editorial Reviews

On this disc, star violist Lawrence Power is joined by his regular pianist partner Simon Crawford-Phillips in a survey of the chamber music of Shostakovich. The centerpiece is the Viola Sonata, Shostakovich s last completed work, premiered posthumously, on what would have been the composer s sixty-ninth birthday. Its ravishing slow finale reworks the opening of Beethoven s Moonlight Sonata a tribute to a composer he revered. Shostakovich the film composer also takes a bow in the form of The Gadfly, with its famous Romance beloved of violinists everywhere. That this works just as compellingly on the viola is triumphantly displayed in the arrangement made by Vadim Borisovsky (founding violist of the Beethoven Quartet), one of the Five Pieces he recast from Shostakovich s original. Shostakovich s piano Preludes have also proved irresistible to transcribers and here we have the seven brilliantly reworked by a pupil of Borisovsky, Yevgeny Strakhov.
