Quick Overview

Melodious and introspective, this work combines the soloists in a contrapuntal fabric that is sure to thrill. Its energetic scherzo is contrasted by the ethereal third movement that is suspended in time. This work has been recorded on the Naxos label with Roberto Diaz as viola soloist. Performance materials are available on rental.
