English Viola Sonatas
Martin Outram (viola) & Julian Rolton (piano)
The viola repertoire grew hugely during the 20th century, due in no small part to the pioneering efforts of the great soloist Lionel Tertis, whose own performing part for his viola transcription of Ireland’s Cello Sonata was consulted for this recording.
The transcription of Delius’s masterful Cello Sonata was made by the present violist, Martin Outram.
Gordon Jacob’s special affection for the viola shines through in his melodious sonata, while Malcolm Arnold’s Viola Sonata is quirky and highly original, and Lennox Berkeley’s Viola Sonata achieves a brilliant and witty finale.
“Martin Outram has made his own transcription of Delius's Cello Sonata - music that adapts beautifully to the subtle range of light and shade he conjures from his instrument in every context...Julian Rolton, too, is an alert and excellent accompanist throughout.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2010 ****
“there is everything in favour of this delightful selection...well worth investigating by anyone fond of English music of the inter-war years.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2010
