I:Largo -- II. Presto -- III. Largo
Devoid of the more flamboyant gestures of some of Schnittke's later music, this sonata shows a clear indebtedness to the clarity (and sometimes the irony) of Shostakovich. Its three sections are played without a pause; the brief, elegiac first movement and demonic second movement, ending in catastrophic collapse, are both revisited in the extended, dream-like finale.
A definitive performance by Josef Lupták (cello) and Nora Skuta (piano), ar the 2012 Indian Summer in Levoca Festival
