Alan Hovhaness Sonata for Cello and Piano, Op. 255

I don’t know why this piece, which is both moving and mystical, is so rarely performed. I can’t find a recording of it anywhere! This performance is from the summer of 2015 at the Greeencastle Summer Music Festival. The pianist is my good friend John Kamfonas; we are working on an album with this work, the Suite for Cello and Piano, and the solo cello piece, Yakamochi.

Movement 1: Andante espressivo

Movement 2: Gracioso

Movement 3 Prayer (Andante Cantabile)
