Notes & Reviews:

Benjamin Dale's music for viola is a remarkable body of work, written largely just before World War I. The music's romantic grandeur is beautifully caught by the honey-toned instrument played by Roger Chase. For total authenticity in this music that Dale wrote for the great violist Lionel Tertis, Chase plays on Tertis's beloved Montagnana, a large instrument with a gorgeous tone. A wonderfully rewarding program is crowned by the first recording of Dale's 'Introduction & Andante' for Six Violas, whose dry title belies a sumptuously romantic outpouring, with the six instruments creating the textures of a string orchestra.
