Pianist Alexandra Silocea joins with fellow Romanian cellist Laura Buruiana in two Russian staples of the repertory the Sonatas of Prokofiev and Shostakovich along with a much rarer offering by compatriot George Enescu: the single-movement Sonata in F minor, an early work that only recently came to light. Silocea has distinguished herself on previous AVIE releases in repertoire ranging from Debussy and Ravel to Liszt and, notably, Prokofiev. Among Buruiana s distinctions is first prize in the New York-based Young Concert Artists competition in 2003, and a PhD summa cum laude from the National University of Music in Bucharest, where she devoted her thesis to the Enescu F minor Sonata.
