Notes & Reviews:

Violist Roger Chase and pianist Michiko Otaki follow Chase's pioneering Dutton recording of viola concertos by Stanley Bate and WH Bell by celebrating the Tertis tradition, again playing Lionel Tertis' own Montagnana viola. Works featured here include Bax's 'Concert Piece', York Bowen's 'Melodies a Sonata by Bliss', and Rubbra's 'Meditation on a Byzantine Hymn "O Quando in Cruce"'.

BBC Music Magazine
...strikingly full and rounded, with at times an almost cello-like breadth.

Gramophone Magazine
... Chase and his recital partner, Michiko Otaki, forge a most stylish, intuitive alliance throughout... a very likeable and thoroughly recommendable anthology.
