Bach: Partita No 2 in D minor, BWV 1004
Rebecca Clarke: Sonata for Viola and Piano (1919)
Rachmaninov: Cello Sonata in G minor, Op 19 (arranged for Viola by Vadim Borisovsky)
While we have had solo viola music in other concerts, this is the first one entirely devoted to the instrument. Rebecca Clarke’s Viola Sonata caused a sensation when it tied for first place in a chamber music competition in 1919. Rachmaninov’s sonata was arranged for viola by the great Russian violist, Vadim Borisovsky, in 1950.
This concert is financially supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust
