Description: We've had a lot of Tansman's piano music lately and, of course, his symphonies (on Chandos some years back) but very little chamber music. Four of the six items here are World Premiere Recordings (*). These pieces date from the early (1918) Romance with traces of Szymanowski and Scriabin in its harmonies, through the rather late Romantic sonata of the following year through the light and Gallic Sonate quasi una fantasia (1924) and two Sonatines (1925 and 1941) to the late Fantaisie of 1963 where Tansman extends tonality for expressive purposes. Klaidi Sahat├ži (violin), Giorgio Koukl (piano).
