Description: Corigliano's early (1963) sonata is a very approachable mixture of neo-classicism in fast movements and a lovely lyricism in its slow one and his latest return to his well-known film score is a set of solo violin caprices receiving their first recording here. Thomson's epigrammatic portraits of people in his life are well-known for their combination of Gallic clarity and his own mordant wit. Philippe Quint (violin), William Wolfram (piano).
