Notes & Reviews:

Lovers of the viola will rejoice at this deliciously varied musical feast: Zoltan Kodaly's magnificent transcription of Bach's 'Chromatic Fantasia, Paganini's 'Sonata' (actually a theme and variations), two elegiac pieces by Vieuxtemps, Kreisler's 'Praeludium' and 'Allegro', Benjamin's 'Le tombeau de Ravel', Enescu's treacherously difficult yet fluidly melodic 'Concert Piece', Jongen's impressionistic 'Introduction et Danse', and Bernard Shore's charming 'Scherzo'.
