Paganini's Sonata for Gran Viola and ORCHESTRA!

"This is the only recording I've come across containing the rare Paganini Sonata per la gran viola e orchestra. Most versions I see, including the Naxos version, have the version for viola and guitar, which is also worth listening to, but not as interesting as the version see on this CD. It's unfortunate that Luigi Alberto Bianchi has turned away from the viola and more to the violin, as he was quite the viola player to tackle the incredibly tough Paganini sonata. The other works on this disc are transcriptions of violin showpieces for the most part, and are not exactly the highlight of the disc, but are easy listening for casual classical music fans. Overall, this is an excellent CD for any viola player or classical music lover."
