Notes & Reviews:

"This is the first I have heard of the Chilean violist Roberto Diaz, Principal violist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Diaz has a rich, deep mellifluous tone, impeccable intonation, an attractive, even vibrato, a nimble left hand, a smooth bow arm, and an excellent sense of timing and tempo. All these qualities make him a real star of his instrment and makes this collection of Vieuxtemps's viola music preferable to Pierre Lenert's." - Magil, ARG
