Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Strad: "... There are basically two ways to play this work (Arnold Bax Sonata): tightly and dramatically, as Tertis and Bax do; or more discursively and romantically, as William Primrose and Harriet Cohen do in the other notable historical recording. Lindemann and Martin take the latter course, but execute their interpretation more convincingly than Primrose and Cohen. They shape the Celtic-influenced melodies with a sure touch and get right inside the music. ... If you buy no other viola recital in 1994, buy this one." Total playing time: 79'13 The Strad: "...
