Abstract / Summary
Traditional and tradition-denying music appear side by side on this recording of works for the solo viola and viola and piano, performed by one of the leading interpreters of music for the viola over the past several decades. Music by Persichetti,Shostakovich, Wolpe, Stravinsky, Schiff, Babbitt "A dichotomy between old and new in music has never made much sense to me. My ability to understand many kinds of music has been honed by my interest in many kinds of music. Participation in the history of the viola means, quite simply, keeping the instrument alive in one's own era." -John Graham Collaborating pianists: Robert Black and Thomas Muraco
