Notes & Reviews:

This exciting release marks the first solo recital disc in some years by Yuri Bashmet, the world's most celebrated violist, and features high quality arrangements mostly not recorded before. 'Reminiscences' is a highly personal disc of Bashmet favorites and encores. He is accompanied by his long-time piano partner Mikhail Muntian (who played for the premiere of Shostakovich's viola sonata). Marais' haunting music for viol suits the viola well and forms the backbone of the recital, just as it did for Bashmet's Carnegie Hall debut.
