Catalogue Number: 02M079
Description: An intensely dramatic second sonata from 1964-65 and a predominantly lyrical third from 1971 are joined by the fourth, from 1985, which was revised at its dedicatee's wish: the original andante contains dodecaphonic and aleatoric passages - remarkable in Vainberg's output - and the composer shortened this movement and added a lyrical Allegretto before the concluding frenetic Allegro molto. Josef Feigelson (cello). Original 1998 Olympia release.
