More Info:

This album brings together three works for cello and piano. The first of them, Gabriel Faure's Cello Sonata No. 1, is a cornerstone of the repertoire for this medium. It was composed in 1917 and premiered by cellist Gerard Hekking and pianist Alfred Cortot.The second, Gordon Crosse's Wavesongs, is a modern masterpiece and written for this present recording's cellist Alexander Baillie in 1983. The work ranks among Crosse's most personal inspirations, as well as being an impressive composition in it's own right. The third is a transcription of an early, appealing work by Maurice Ravel. Written in April 1897, andsometimes referred to as Sonate posthume, Ravel's [First] Violin Sonata is among his earliest extant works.
