Notes and Editorial Reviews

Violist Anne Lanzilotti releases her debut solo album, focusing on the art of transcription, with repertoire by Caroline Shaw, Andrew Norman, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, and Lanzilotti herself. Featuring premiere recordings of the viola versions of all these works, "in manus tuas" is a celebration of the expressive and lyrical side of the contemporary viola repertoire by one of its most accomplished and active advocates.
