Description: Our second Kahn disc in six months to go along with his four piano trios (07Q008) released by cpo last July. As you'd expect, these sonatas, written every ten years from 1886, are in the conservative, Brahmsian, late Romantic style Kahn never abandoned. Although he may experiment with structure and form, Kahn always focused on, as Clara Schumann put it when she recalled playing in his first violin sonata, "passion, warmth, charm and superb workmanship". Julia Bushkova (violin), Arsentiy Kharitonov (piano).
