Lovers of the viola will rejoice at this deliciously varied musical feast.

Zoltán Kodály’s magnificent transcription of Bach’s Chromatic Fantasia is complemented by Paganini’s Sonata (actually a theme and variations), two elegiac pieces by Vieuxtemps, and Kreisler’s Praeludium and Allegro.

Benjamin’s Le tombeau de Ravel, Enescu’s treacherously difficult yet fluidly melodic Concert Piece, Jongen’s impressionistic Introduction et Danse, and Bernard Shore’s charming Scherzo complete the disc.

"The performances excel. Roger Chase’s playing is remarkable. ” BBC Music Magazine on a previous release
