Notes & Reviews:

Released earlier this summer in Canada, just in time for the 34th International Viola Congress (June 7-11) in Montreal, is this marvelous all-Brahms, all-viola CD. The viola takes its rightful place here in the hands of Steven Dann, one of the country's best chamber musicians. Alongside him is the "astonishingly beautiful" voice of Susan Platts, with her "powerful and sharp register, flowing like honey towards the rich depths of a contralto" (Washington Post).
