Cello Music (Canadian) - COULTHARD, J. / WEINZWEIG, J. / GUERRERO, A. / ARCHER, V. (When Music Sounds) (J. Harrison, Keillor)

This selection of undeservedly neglected Canadian works for cello and piano is framed by the music of Jean Coulthard, her 1946 Sonata establishing a personal voice while building on the influence of Debussy, the later When Music Sounds exemplifying her lyricism and sensitive treatment of both instruments. John Weinzweig’s Cello Sonata fascinatingly combines serial technique with Jewish melodic shapes, expressing national joy and the struggles of creating the new state of Israel. Remembered as the teacher of Glenn Gould, Alberto Guerrero’s Chants oubliés extend the impressionism of Debussy and Ravel into new directions. Violet Archer’s Sonata refers to Baroque models, exploiting the duo’s sensuality, wit and acrobatic virtuosity.
