I am in no position to say better or best regarding the Cello Sonata - but this is the performance that I first heard and it won me over completely;



goodness me these folk can play - great couplings too.....

Its the cellist Jelena Ocic on Channel Classics coupling Kabalevsky and Ginastera cello sonatas - very fine disc indeed......

I wasn’t aware of this recording - thanks RS. What a great pairing of works - don’t know the Senderovas though.

Genuinely its the only version of the Kabalevsky I know so if someone were to say "X or Y" is on a different level of performance I would accept that completely.  But to my innocent ear this sounds like a cracking performance and certainly one that convinced me of the high quality of the work.  And as you say the coupling(s) are interesting and powerful too....
