Mendelssohn's viola sonata is an early work which remained unpublished in his lifetime. He was 15 years old when he completed the sonata. This Urtext edition is a welcome addition to the scant classical-romantic viola repertoire.
“...just on par with the historically high-class print quality, the Mendelssohn Sonata in C minor for viola and piano found between these particular pages is exactly what you'd expect it to be: superb in every sense...With so few pieces of preeminent repertoire for this alto instrument, Mendelssohn delivers an opportunity for violists to perform and explore music that's deep, lyrical, challenging, and hauntingly beautiful.”--Strings magazine.
