Description: Still under the influence of the war years, the Third (1946) begins in a lyrical, neo-classical style but its slow movement is a stoic lament and the finale an austere fugue. The Fifth (1956) begins with a big, bold passacaglia and contains a good deal of highly sophisticated piano writing, as one might expect from a composer who was himself a fine pianist. The succinct and dramatic Sixth of 1960 makes use of sharply delineated contrapuntal lines, and rounds off Vainberg's sonata cycle with a striking, virtuosic and inventive fugue. The Fugues, written in 1983 for the daughter of the Borodin Quartet's cellist, receive their first recordings. Allison Brewster Franzetti (piano).
