  • November 11, 2008 Demanding but Idiomatic Sonata for Viola

    Martinu's first sonata for viola is not as well known as it deserves to be. Written three years after the Rhapsody Concerto for Viola Orchestra, it is thoroughly idiomatic in its writing for the viola. This, and very direct neo-Classical style can give the impression that this piece...

    is more straightforward than it is. Nonetheless a good and worthwhile workout! The edition is clear and well produced.
