Description: The main reason for including this is the beautiful Taktakishvili sonata from 1968, quite Gallic in its clean lines and gentle lyricism (a gorgeous slow movement) and gently neo-classical in its outer movements. du Bois' 1961 piece is brief and dodecaphonic, Zuidam somewhat more approachable (2007) while the two Gubaidulina pieces (1963/93 and 1978) are among her most instantly approachable works. Abbie de Quant (flute), Elizabeth van Malde (piano).
