Notes & Reviews:

It is an instrument of nuances, of fine shadings and veiled beauty. The viola especially inspired wonderful pieces from romantic composers who were searching for new sounds beyond the well-beaten path of virtuosity. For his new Genuin CD, the magnificent violist Rainer Moog has put together an extraordinary program that unites the apparently familiar and the truly unusual. He delivers a truly charismatic interpretation of the two splendid sonatas of Brahms, whilst the works of Robert Fuchs and Friedrich Kiel impressively stand by them, side by side: both their repertoire value and interpretations are outstanding.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The German violist Rainer Moog served from 1974 until 1978 as the principal violist of the Berlin Philharmonic. He has an exceptional technique and a truly personal voice on the instrument. The Moog recording is engineered so that the viola can be very present even when playing quietly, which lends intimacy and occasional creates a feeling of distance between the viola and the piano.
