 Ashan Pillai Soloist


 One of Franz Schubert’s most important chamber music works for string instruments is nowadays performed by violists and cellists, although it was originally written for neither. The “arpeggione”, for which Schubert wrote his eponymous sonata, was an invention of the Romantic that is as good as extinct. This instrument had a soft sound that apparently reminded listeners of a woodwind. Its lyrical character makes it related to the viola to a certain extent.

 
The sound of the viola, with its evident closeness to the human voice, inspired violist Ashan Pillai to select some of the Schwanengesang Lieder to perform on his instrument. The album is completed by the composition of one of Schubert’s contemporaries who has almost been forgotten, only attracting some attention by the musical world in the last several years: Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda, who was born in 1801 in Prague. At the height of his career, Kalliwoda was one of Europe’s most-per-formed composers.
