Kabalevsky’s brooding and impressive Second Cello Concerto of 1964 deserves to be better known, and Leonard Elschenbroich and Andrew Litton are persuasive advocates for its inclusion in the regular cello concerto repertoire. It is paired on this CD with Prokofiev’s late Cello Sonata, composed during a particularly stressful period for the composer, who had recently come under attack from Stalin’s thuggish henchman Andrei Zdhanov as part of his purge against ‘formalism’. Championed by Sviatoslav Richter and Mstislav Rostropovich, it is a masterpiece from the final years of Prokofiev’s life.
