Description: After a disc of songs in German and Italian which we offered in August 2007 (08J060), we have the first all-Sinigaglia chamber music release. Although he collected Piedmontese folk songs much of his life, there is little folk-like here (except for the trio of the scherzo in the cello sonata); this is German Romanticism with strong melodies and sophisticated harmonies and the adagios of each sonata are among the more affecting and moving pieces of their type we've heard in months. Solomia Soroka (violin), Noreen Silver (cello), Phillip Silver (piano).
