Notes & Reviews:

Born in Naples, Ettore Causa started his studies of violin and viola at the Naples Conservatory. After graduating with the highest honors, he was selected to study at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Swtizerland where he remained for four years. In 1996 he won a scholarship to work under the guidance of Michael Tree of the Guarneri Quartet, at the Manhattan School of Music in New York. In 1998, he was appointed principal viola of the Carl Nielsen Philharmonic in Odense, Denmark. He also became leader of the Copenhagen Chamber Soloists. He has been Professor of Viola and Chamber Music at the International Menuhin Music Academy since 2001. He writes: "The largest gaps in the repertoire are in the Romantic Period. Although we have been spoiled by the wonderful quality of the music from this period, particularly in the realm of chamber music, the works for viola have remained rare. The phenomenon is perhaps explained by the absence of great viola virtuosos who were able to encourage and stimulate composer's curiosity. You have to wait for the blossoming of personalities such as Lionel Tertis, William Primrose or Paul Hindemith before this trend began to change at the beginning of the 20th Century."
