The outstanding work is the Sonata for Two Pianos (1947), a rare Bowles sortie into modernist severity, especially in the last movement’s implacably pounding rhythms. Kasparov reckons it is, “amongst the most challenging works ever composed for this medium.”

He and Lutsyshyn deliver it with admirable panache.

Pianists Andrey Kasparov and Oksana Lutsyshyn deliver technically adroit and stylistically sound performances that capture the full measure of Bowles’s musical imagination.
