Notes & Reviews:

Over the years, the early 'Cello Sonata' of Shostakovich has become a favorite piece in recitals and on disc, with many stellar performers having made famous recordings. The work's first performer, Viktor Kubatsky (1898-1970) was not only the dedicatee, but, with the composer's permission, made a transcription for viola and piano which was published after Kubatsky's death, and this is it first recording in the western world. Lars Anders Tomter is one of today's outstanding violists. His international career began in the late 1980s when he toured extensively in Germany and the United States with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra under Iona Brown.
