Description: Keys was a multivalent teacher, pianist, administrator and, rarely, a composer and his 21-minute cello sonata from 1960 is one of those pieces which the English establishment would soon be burying: tonal even if there's no trace of English pastoralism or of late Romantic style - just a good, solid piece which gives both players plenty of strong material to challenge them while also treating the audience as intelligent adults. Rohan de Saram (cello), Benjamin Frith (piano).
