Description: Nechayev (1928) was aware of stylistic developments pursued by Bartok and Prokofiev as his sonata shows with its richly whole-tone harmonies and its motoric rhythms. One of Myaskovsky’s most appealing and approachable later works, his 1947 sonata begins with a wistful first movement, followed by the final movement containing a series of 12 Variations on a theme eloquent and restrained by turns. For the Shebalin, see last month (08U005). Sasha Rozhdestvensky (violin), Viktoria Postnikova (piano).
