From the still neglected Dohnányi’s Sonata, op.8 to one of 20th Century’s chamber music masterpieces: Shostakovich’s Cello Sonata op. 40. Intense and brilliant performances in this album which also includes Janacek’s gem “Pohadka”.

Listening to pianist Noelia Rodiles is always a great pleasure, she has such a delicate, nuanced touch in her playing. (…) Her pianism is a full equal partner (and perhaps creative lead) to that of her collaborator on the cello, Fernando Arias. Together these performers forge a partnership that is fully complimentary and synergistic, one not deferring to the other, both providing equal measure of musical insight, drama, and emotion.
