Gawlick: At the still point of the turning world – Kodály: Sonata, op. 8 – Digital Download

$8.99 (Digital download)

World Première Recording

Zoltán Kodály composed one of the classics of the solo cello repertory in 1915 with his Sonata for Cello, Op. 8, which along with works by Bach and Britten forms one of the cornerstones of the music composed for unaccompanied cello. In turn, Ralf Yusuf Gawlick has created another milestone for the cello in a work that expands the very conceptions of the instrument’s aesthetics and technique, At the still point of the turning world, Op. 9. Both of these substantial pieces are performed by one of the great cellists of our time, Rafael Popper-Keizer, to whom Ralf Gawlick’s Op. 9 is dedicated.
