Description: This volume brings two neglected sonatas: now that ASV is a dead label, the only other recording of Bax's Celtic-inspired, restlessly emotional and tragic sonata (1923) is from Lyrita's mono age, while Bowen's 1921 sonata (first and only other recording a 1998 British Music Society release - 09A039) exhibits a romantic nature clothed in advanced, impressionistic harmonies. Ireland, by contrast, is practically standard repertoire by now (8 other recordings!) Paul Watkins (cello), Huw Watkins (piano).
