Gunther Schuller: Duologue
John Knowles Paine: Violin Sonata in B Minor
DUOLOGUE/VIOLIN SONATA IN B coverGunther Schuller's modern masterpiece, commissioned by the McKim Fund of the Library of Congress, is paired with a recently rediscovered, turn-of-the-century gem of America's first compser of international stature, John Knowles Paine.

Virtuoso violinst Rafael Druian is joined here by 1988 Busoni Competition winner Benjamin Pasternack.  Brilliantly played, digitally recorded.

(Also listen to John Knowles Paine's masterpiece oratorio on the GM 2-CD set, St Peter: An Oratorio.)

"Druian plays with an incantory raptness that is quite indrawing ... a wonderful and enterprising recital of American violin music."
