Enescu sonata 3 "dans le caractère populaire roumain"

June 1, 2020, 3:48 PM · Here is a recording of this sonata from a live performance I did with Tibor Szasz back in 1990. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRWkHXt4B6c&feature=youtu.be He did not want it released because he said he made too many "boo boos." He finally relented (and I really didn't notice any boo boos.)I thought it was quite a good performance.

Also on the program Were Dohnanyi Sonata https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SsP2cdLU5A&t=157s and Bartok Sonata #2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Taifh_BpaJY&t=396s which if you are interested can find on youtube.

This program of Eastern European sonatas happened several weeks after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Please enjoy!
