Review By David Fanning ,Gramophone,August 2011

Three sonatas and the popular Vocalise in performances it would be hard to fault

Who is going to turn up their noses at 82 and a half minutes of Russian cello-and-piano classics, delivered with complete technical aplomb and sureness of idiomatic touch by one of the finest partnerships around? Not me. Chaushian and Sudbin show that it is actually possible to deliver Rachmaninov’s Sonata full-throatedly without making it sound like a piano concerto with cello accompaniment. And they demonstrate equally that Shostakovich’s Sonata does not need hysterical exaggeration of its subtexts in order to be richly communicative.
