Chostakovich’s Sonata for Cello and Piano (1934) was considered acceptable by the soviet authorities thanks to its lyrical lines. The Russian composer, throwing himself into this intimate and erudite genre, brings several updates to a sonata characterized by a mix of deep humanity and folkloric music accents. Rachmaninoff’s Sonata Op. 19 (1901) strictly follows the romantic tradition. Some poetical melodies cross rhythm and theme contrasts in a great musical spell.
