Vincent Persichetti was one of the most important twentieth-century American composers but, despite a prolific output of superbly crafted and highly approachable works, his name remains neglected. This program of world première recordings includes the Sonata for Violin and Piano, Op 15 which was rediscovered by Hasse Borup after being lost for over 70 years. This, the Serenade No 4 and the Sonata for Solo Violin, Op 10 derive from Persichetti’s exploratory formative years. The educational Piano Sonatinas range through styles from charmingly plaintive melodies to virtuoso toccatas, while Masques is a lovely set of miniatures written by a mature composer recognised for his talents.
