Complete Piano Works, Vol. 1
Artist: Walker / Dossin
Format: CD

More Info:

This is the first of two volumes of George Walker's complete piano works, both featuring performances by Alexandre Dossin. The three sonatas heard here offer compelling contrasts. Sonata No. 1 is his longest and utilises folk tunes, No. 2 is darker and unified by tonal relationships, while No. 3 displays contrapuntal mastery and translucent elements. The album opens with the serene and majestic Prelude and Caprice, while both Spatials and Spektra are atonal. Bauble is heard in a world premiere recording.
