Notes and Editorial Reviews

Going well beyond mere historical interest, this program features repertory that delighted Parisian concert halls and salons throughout the 19th century. It tells the story of how the viola, in the hands of great virtuosos, at last emerged from the violin's shadow. Violist Antoine Tamestit, making his first solo recording for harmonia mundi, is joined by pianist Cédric Tiberghien to bring these stunning pieces back to life.
