Previn has collaborated again with Toni Morrison, setting four poems for Sylvia McNair and including a cello obbligato for Yo-Yo Ma called, simply, "Four Songs." He has also written a major "Cello Sonata" for Ma. There is nothing casual or ordinary about this music. The "Cello Sonata" begins in typical Previn manner, with the engaging scurrying music he does well. Then it turns lyrical. He starts probing his material in a deeper, richer manner, melding his many stylistic talents. The songs, too, are beautifully made, the powerful expression of a complete musical personality. And the performances are riveting.
