The Polish Suite (1935), for violin and piano, is filled with modal inflections and has a dance as finale. The structures are classical, like everything on this program.
The charming Concerto da Camera for piano, wind instruments, and percussion (1964) is playful and breezy, with touches of neoclassical Stravinsky. Milhaud comes to mind as well.
These seldom heard pieces are worth your time, if you’re looking for unexpected pleasure in music of the period. Performances are excellent. © 2019 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
