from the man who runs the Curtis Institute. I've played most of Vieuxtemps violin music but stayed away from the viola pieces. Diaz makes a strong case for these pieces and will help others reconsider the works and have them returned to the recitel stage. Robert Koenig's playing is deft and sensitive in his support.
The melodies are reflective, deep, passionate, and soothing. I only wish Vieuxtemps would have written more.
