Bowen: Viola Sonatas Nos. 1 & 2
The Bridge Duo: Matthew Jones (viola) & Michael Hampton (piano)
The Bridge Duo’s warmly received recital disc of English Music for Viola (8572579) is joined here by a programme of York Bowen’s brilliant pieces for viola and piano. This new recording will provide fresh impetus to these relatively under-represented masterpieces.
Matthew Jones is violist of the Bridge Duo (with pianist Michael Hampton), and a professor at Trinity College of Music, Royal Welsh College and Charterhouse International Music Festival. He has given masterclasses around the world.
“both works provide a refreshing and varied sequence to the Brahms viola sonatas with which they are in many ways unjustly compared. Bowen's effulgent and often suave harmonic language is at once more opulent and extrovert...Matthew Jones and Michael Hampton's enthusiastic and sympathetic performances bring out this aspect of Bowen's style in spades” Gramophone Magazine, March 2012
“The Bridge Duo prove to be absolutely first rate advocates both technically and stylistically. Jones has a slightly leaner and more agile tone than some violists which suits the febrile mood of the music well and he is well partnered by pianist Michael Hampton.” MusicWeb International, March 2012
