York Bowen was a highly accomplished late Romantic composer whose music suffered a popularity eclipse, particularly in the 2nd half of the 20th Century. He was a virtuoso pianist, and all three chamber works here feature beautiful writing for that instrument. The early Suite for Violin and Piano was written for Fritz Kreisler, and it breathes an air of sultry Romanticism that is highly engaging and may remind you a little of Faure. Krysia Osostowicz plays here with world-class technique and considerable sensitivity, while Michael Dussek offers a hand in glove accompaniment. Jane Salmon plays the 1921 Cello Sonata, a piece of some depth and idiosyncracy. Salmon's playing is full sounding if a little breathy, but she clearly has great empathy for the work. In the later Violin Sonata, Osostowicz and Dussek offer splendid evaocations of its more rugged Romanticism. Throughout the CD, the sound engineering from London's Henry Wood Hall is excellent, with the piano slightly recessed but still full bodied. This CD is an exceptionally worthy enterprise, and I look forward to hearing more music by York Bowen.
