Sara Mingardo (alto)


Luca Sanzò (viola) & Maurizio Paciariello (piano)

This new recording contains Brahms’ complete music in which the viola plays a solo part: the two Sonatas Op. 120 and the 2 Gesänge Op. 91, for alto, viola and piano.

Brahms’ two viola sonatas are masterworks of his late style: the perfect handling of the sonata form sets the structure for autumnal reminiscenses and melancholic introspection, alternated by either passionate or tender interludes.

Beautiful performances by violist Luca Sanzo and pianist Maurizio Paciariello, who made an excellent recording of Hindemith’s Viola Sonatas for Brilliant Classics (BC94782): “Strong performance….a real winner” (Musicweb).

A special treat is the voice of Sara Mingardo in the Zwei Gesänge, one of the foremost altos of today, who sung with Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Chailly, Myung-Whun-Chung, Rinaldo Alessandrini.

Yuri Bashmet (viola) & Mikhail Muntian (piano)

Firma Melodiya presents chamber music by Johannes Brahms performed by Yuri Bashmet and Mikhail Muntian. Two Viola Sonatas, Op. 120, by Johannes Brahms composed in 1894, signify an actual completion of the composer’s creative life and the epoch of German music romanticism in general.

The name of Yuri Bashmet is known to any music aficionado. A viola player, conductor, teacher and tireless public figure, he has been an active performer for almost forty years, a performer of the entire viola repertoire of academic music and an initiator of numerous works by contemporary composers. Pianist Mikhail Muntian has been Yuri Bashmet’s constant ensemble partner (along with Bashmet’s teacher Fyodor Druzhinin, he took part in the premiere of Shostakovich’s Viola Sonata). Their joint concert performances and recordings are notable for a splendid ensemble partnership, absolute integrity of performing ideas and in-depth comprehension of a musical text.

Brahms’s sonatas was recorded in 1984.

The Art of Lionel Tertis

The Art of Lionel Tertis


Bach, J S:

Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004: Chaconne

arr. Tertis

Bax:

Viola Sonata

Brahms:

Viola Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 120 No. 1

Delius:

Violin Sonata No. 2

arr. Tertis


Lionel Tertis performed for his instrument the service that Casals did for his: that of raising it from the obscurity of orchestral rank-and-file to respected solo status. The present re-issue offers four of his most important recording including the Bax Sonata, written for Tertis, accompanied by the composer.

“Tertis’s portamentos all feel right, the richness of his tone is extraordinary, and Cohen’s accompaniment is passionate and eloquent...Such is the quality of this performance [Delius’s Violin Sonata No. 2] that I would struggle to think of a recording of the original version that is more persuasive.” International Record Review, December 2014

Robin Ireland (viola) & Tim Horton (piano)

Robin and Tim formed their Duo in 2008, and quickly discovered a strong rapport in playing together. Their concerts and recording together since then have constituted a small but precious part of their busy careers.

“The desire to make this recording built up slowly over a number of years. Viola recitals are increasingly rare, and a recording seemed one way to honour the decades of close acquaintance with these beloved jewels of the viola repertoire. Tim and I felt that we might find inspiration and spontaneity in a concert performance that could elude us in a studio recording.” Robin Ireland
