This recording allows French violist Geneviève Strosser to fully display her talents in a programme of singular works that she has nurtured for several years and has particularly appropriated to her qualities as an artist: warm sonorities, heightened sensitivity, great expressiveness… Many of the pieces on this disc, pieces on which she worked with the composers themselves, are world premiere recordings.

“Strosser's fingers are kept crazy busy, but each note matters”
21st July 2011
“as Geneviève Strosser shows, [the Ligeti] is a very considerable addition to the solo-viola repertory...there's Lachenmann's Toccatina, too, a study originally written for violin, and one of Giacinto Scelsi's explorations of microtonal tunings in Manto, which requires the violist to sing as well as play in the final movement. Like every challenge, Strosser takes it totally in her stride.”
