Two major sonatas which were their composer’s sole contributions to their respective instruments are at the heart of this recital by Turner Sims’ Associate Artist Lawrence Power. Shostakovich’s work for viola, completed in 1975 just weeks before his death has been described by composer and writer Gerard McBurney as ‘a classic of late 20th century chamber music’. Poulenc, having completed his single violin sonata after discarding two previous attempts, declared ‘The monster is finished… it is not bad, I think…’
