Product Description

Works for violin and piano are an important part of Cyril Scott's chamber music. This disc presents three sonatas which span his output. The capricious and ruminative First Violin Sonata ranks among the most convincing and successful of his earlier large-scale compositions. Sonata Melodica is a more relaxed yet equally quixotic work, while the Third Violin Sonata is one of the most inventive from his later years.

Of all the many recordings of Cyril Scott that have come out over the last few years my favourite has been the Dutton recording by these two players of the hitherto mislaid and utterly unknown Sonata Lirica. Nothing, therefore, could be more welcome than this recording by the same two musicians of Scott's three published violin sonatas. It has all the merits of its predecessor - a perfect grasp of Scott's idiom and how to communicate it, beauty of tone and perfect intonation from the violinist, the right balance between the two players, and a rich yet clear recorded sound. What of the works themselves?

Scott's First Violin Sonata of 1908 used always to be mentioned together with the First Piano Sonata of 1909 as marking his maturation as a composer. Highly distinctive are the melismatic melodic lines, with motifs that expand and contract freely, generating Scott's then revolutionary irregular barring. The harmony is equally air-borne, with its constant enharmonic modulations and lack of resolution except at the end of movements. The drawback is that the harmony lacks both tension and a sense of direction; the style fits short pieces (such as the Poems for piano) better than longer ones. But what saves the present work is its youthful verve and the brilliance of the writing for the instruments.

The Sonata Melodica of 1950 is no less of a milestone, in that it was in this piece that Scott created his late style, with which he proceeded to write a whole series of chamber works and the Third Piano Sonata; it is interesting to compare the exactly contemporary Second String Quartet, one of Scott's best works but not in his final manner.
