Synopsis

Product Description
A most daring massed instrumental addition from Cala to the London Sound series. The London Viola Sound includes an extraordinary variety of pieces and styles, and features Rivka Golani whose impeccable technique has earned her the recognition as one of the greatest violists of all time. Bold programming is matched by fine arrangements by Julian Milone, in a landmark viola recording. From the intense driving force of 48 violas charging through Shostakovich's Galop from Cherymushki to the hypnotic wash of strings in Weill's Kiddush these are sublime performances whose sound simmers with emotional intensity.

Violins and 'celli. Who needs 'em??
08/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A delightful exercise in orchestration, this recording features 48 violas from the major London orchestras in numbers ranging from Gershwhin to Bacharach to Faure. With the exception of some percussion here and there, a harp and the occasional string bass, these selections are NOTHING but violas."
The best of large group viola

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a most unique collection of works. The mellow but sonorous sound that is unique to the viola is amplified 48 times - nothing else does tribute to the viola like this recording. This is the BEST recording for viola that I've ever heard!"
