Notes & Reviews:

“My inspiration for this recording came from Paul Hindemith’s Viola Sonata. I learned this piece while studying at the Curtis Institute in my teens, and I was amazed by the composition, and the emotional power embedded in the music. I wondered what inspired Hindemith to write such complexity of expression. My fascination led me to research that period, and I found music from various places written in different styles each with unusually creative compositional techniques. In this project, I wanted to showcase the works of different composers at that point in history to express how human beings from all walks of life can be affected during such horrific times.” (Teng Li, Principal Viola, Toronto Symphony)
