Catalogue Number: 09P048
Description: A useful budget-priced series begins with two sonatas so often recorded, it's unnecessary to say anything about them. Less often heard are the 14-minute Torso of 1911, on the way towards the harmonic expansion of Enescu's later works and the five-minute Impromptu, a raptly expressive test-piece from 1903. Axel Strauss (violin), Ilya Poletaev (piano).
