Valse sentimentale, Op. 51 No. 6


While Rachmaninov evokes purity in his 'Vocalise', Shostakovich intones a swansong, a song of death. In the warm timbre of Gérard Caussé's viola and the generous sonority of Brigitte Engerer's piano, all the melancholy and tenderness of Russia finds eloquent expression.

“this is a very successful release. Mirare's engineering team has captured both performers with warmth and with exciting detail...one is drawn to the intelligence and sensitivity of the playing, as well as to the reedy and rather human sound of Causse's instrument.” International Record Review, May 2012

“Causse's big sound is every bit a match for Shostakovich's dour, late masterpiece; an impression reinforced by the bathroom acoustic. He and Engerer present a straightforward, almost brusque view of the sonata” Classical Music, 5th May 2012 ***
