Anthony Joseph Lanman Sonata 46, performed by Duo46

Truly I've been interested in picking up recordings by this violin and guitar duo for years but have been, as the mysterious Mr. Yotsuya used to tell Kyoko Otonoashi, "temporarily short of funds".

Here's a video of Lanman's replete with the score, which is fun to read along with during the recording.

And here's a video of Duo46 playing the piece where you get to see them playing the same. They really tear into the aggressive passages in this one.  :) The lyric moments are also a bit more lyric, almost Romantic but it's all gloriously late 20th century in its sound.

... starting to wonder if this is becoming a de facto chamber music week 3.
