Saw mention of the Casella Cello Sonatas. I do like Casella, seems to be worth considering.

In addition to a Brilliant Classics release



I saw an earlier release from Dynamic.



Out of print and it seems like a wild goose chase will be required to find it at a reasonable price (although downloads are available for sale). Anyone heard both who could offer an opinion?

Neither recording is outstanding, but, if I had to choose, the Brilliant Classics recording has better audio quality and the performances are stronger. One of the problems I have with both recordings is the cellist. Both cellists have harsh tones that do the music a disservice, but they’re the only games in town for these works. I’m still hoping that a better recording of them comes along soon, but I won’t hold my breath.
