Considered the first really modern violist, legendary Scottish musician William Primrose first came to prominence with the violin in the 1920s, turning to the viola on the recommendation of his greatest mentor, Eugène Ysaÿe. This programme includes four Paganini Caprices, which did more than any other of Primrose’s recordings to spread his fame among his peers, as well as two major works written especially for him: Arthur Benjamin’s Sonata, and Roy Harris’s Soliloquy and Dance. Primrose performs here with numerous noted accompanists, and alongside Jascha Heifetz in Halvorsen’s Passacaglia. This is the second of two volumes, the first of which is on 8.111382.

 

 "...Distinguished, passionate and virtuoso playing from a great viola player, with colleagues including Jascha Heifetz and Marian Anderson. Don’t let the mono sound put you off..." *****

Martin Cotton - BBC Music Magazine - April 2012
