My intention was to add these files to the last post of Kell's 1940 recording of the Brahms Clarinet Trio with Kentner and Pini. However I decided such a course would make it harder to find in web searches, so I'm doing an additional post. This post and the last one, though, combine to make a very nice and reasonably full CD. I got the RAW files for these on the European Archive and did a renovation, as they were fairly noisey. The first Sonata, in particular, had an inordinate amount of hiss, and both Sonatas were fairly dull as I downloaded them. A number of light filters and a substantial re-equalization later, they sounded pretty good. So here they are, performed by artists of deep musical integrity with total technical mastery of their instruments.
I am quite far behind in doing CD covers and inserts, so this and the previous post do not have them. If and when I catch up, I'll add them to the post, but it seemed more important not to wait and to get the music up. The tracks, as I created them are as follows:
1-4 Sonata in F minor Op 120. No. 1
5-7 Sonata in E flat Op. 120 No. 2
