Russian Viola Sonatas

July 28th, 2011

I have a new recording out of Russian pieces with pianist Glen Inanga.

The album features composers Varvara Gaigerova, Alexander Winkler, and Paul Juon. Who are they, and where is the Shostakovich Viola Sonata? Well, as I'm sure most of you have noticed, I have yet to update my web site and blog in many months, and I'm still a little behind. I will eventually have dedicated pages for the composers and Glen Inanga, my fabulous pianist. I love the Shostakovich Sonata, but did not include it because I love to explore music off the beaten path. There are other wonderful recordings of the Shostakovich, and maybe one day I will make a recording from the standard viola repertoire.

I hope you enjoy the new CD!

  2. The Porter recording should be available world wide, but the Russian sonatas has not yet been released world wide. I think within the next 6 months… Glad you like the music!

  4. Eliesha,

    Your You Tube Video of this album is too short. You might try putting a whole tack out there. Your music is so beautiful!
