Notes & Reviews:

"Yuri Bashmet confounds all the old viola-player jokes. Flamboyant and intense, he has rescued the viola from its reputation as the introverted nerd of the string family, and transformed it into an instrument for the communication of Byronic emotional drama. His approach doesn't suit everything, but in the long rhetorical solos of Sofia Gubaidulina's Viola Concerto he's riveting." ***** - Stephen Johnson BBC
