The viola was Hindemith's instrument (though he could play almost any), and he wrote some of his most expressive chamber music for it. This two-disc set includes all four of Hindemith's sonatas for solo violin and the three for viola and piano. I prefer the wildness of Hindemith's earlier music to the sometimes arid calm of his later music, so listeners like myself who like Hindemith can have a feast here as most of these are early works. They are played with energy and passion by an outstanding violist and a fine pianist.

The viola has long languished in the shadow of its smaller and more popular sibling, the violin. While it has been an essential ensemble and orchestral instrument, the viola has had relatively little music written for it in solo rolesin both the chamber and (especially) concerto genres. But owing largely to the influence of 20th-century English viola virtuoso Lionel Tertis, a number of prominent English composers have been inspired to write new music for this overlooked instrument.

La fede calcistica è un elemento imprescindibile nella città dei Medici e chiunque viva o abbia vissuto sulle rive dell'Arno, sa bene quanto sia difficile rimanere estranei a questa febbre. I protagonisti delle glorie viola, del presente e del passato, sono diventati eroi cittadini. La Fiorentina, i suoi successi, i personaggi che l'hanno fatta grande, e quelli che hanno regalato sogni di gloria ai suoi tifosi, sono raccontati in ordine alfabetico, con aneddoti inediti e dovizia di particolari, in questo libro che rappresenta un punto di riferimento per i tifosi della Viola, sparsi in tutta Italia.

Going well beyond mere historical interest, this album unveils the charms of a repertoire that delighted Parisian concert halls and salons throughout the 19th century. It demonstrates how the viola finally emerged from the violin’s shadow thanks to virtuoso playing, now resuscitated by the talent of Antoine Tamestit and Cédric Tiberghien in pieces which offer much more than the exquisite languors of bel canto.

For a single-package introduction to the music of William Walton, it would be hard to do better than this two-disc set from EMI. Not only is the selection impeccable (including the First Symphony, Belshazzar's Feast, the violin and viola concertos, plus the Partita, for orchestra), but the performances, with the composer conducting, are, for all intents and purposes, definitive.

Gyorgy Kosa plays a pivotal role in the history of Hungarian classical music as pianist, composer, and educator. He himself had excellent teachers and so had a bright start to his career. His first was Bela Bartok at the Academy of Music between 1912 and 1916 and for two years he had the pleasure of working under the guidance of Erno Dohnanyi, one of the most charismatic musicians of the twentieth century.
