Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Many violinists could become envious of this fabulous musician's recording of two solo sonatas each by Paul Hindemith and Günther Raphael. Above all, none of them will probably ever achieve such a sonorous sound ... Demanding, sensuous music of the twentieth century, compellingly interpreted!

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
I find Weber's readings of Gunter Raphael's two pieces for viola solo quite interesting. He wrote these two sonatas in 1940 and 1946. III of Op. 46 is a delightful.
