Rautavaara : the cello music
David Pereira - cello
Bonnie Smart - cello
Ian Munro - piano
Remarkably, all these cello works by the Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, are presented here in world premiere recordings. The works span nearly 50 years from the pen of Rautavaara, and the major compositional influences through his life are revealed. The solo sonata and the two sonatas with piano deserve a place in the cello repertoire, notwithstanding their virtuosic technical demands.
