Notes & Reviews:

William Primrose composed these arrangements in order-as he mischievously wrote- to elevate the viola from its 'dull dog of the string family' status, and to 'set the cat among the pigeons'. Roberto Diaz, until recently principal violist of the Philadelphia Orchestra plays the magnificent-sounding c.1600 Amati instrument formerly owned by Primrose.
