Quote from: springrite on May 26, 2009, 06:46:26 AMThe cello concerto is generally considered his best work or, at least, his most popular work anyway. But recently I have been quite taken by his piano sonatas. I have not heard any of his symphonies, however.
Quote from: Guido on May 26, 2009, 01:01:01 PMI adore the first cello concerto which is as tuneful and lyrical as anything we cellists get - and that second movement is just gorgeous.
Quote from: Joe_Campbell on May 26, 2009, 10:35:38 PMUntil this point, I was only familiar with Kabalevsky as one of the filler late romantic composers in the RCM repertoire books. As you can imagine, the short character[-free] pieces selected from his (apparently) large output did not inspire me to look further into his music. I'm interested in recommendations of recordings, particularly for his piano music. I'll definitely look into the cello concerto, though.
Quote from: springrite on May 27, 2009, 12:29:36 AMThe recording I have is from COLLINS, piano music played by Artur Pizarro. Of the three sonatas, the first is an early piece, youthful but otherwise unremarkbale. The second sonata is my favorite of the three, easily matches that of Myaskovsky. The third sonata is the most famous and most often performed of the three, partly because of the memorable folksy themes, I am sure. The filler pieces are nice, too. But when I play this CD I usually only listen to the 2nd and 3rd sonata.
