Although a violist himself, Beethoven left nothing for the viola – except for the fragment of a sonata recorded here for the first time. So his contemporaries and successors have ‘helped’ him fill the gaps: it was Karl Xaver Kleinheinz (1765–1832) who arranged the String Trio, Op. 8, gaining Beethoven’s reluctant approval; and a later musician, Friedrich Hermann (1828–1907), transformed the Septet, Op. 20, into an ambitious viola sonata. And now Paul Silverthorne, Principal Viola of the London Symphony Orchestra, expands the repertoire with his own transcription of the Horn Sonata, Op. 17.
 

"An enjoyable collection that reminds us that Beethoven played the viola in his youth ... Violist-producer Michael Ponder has achieved a beautifully sounding CD ..."

Carlos Maria Solare - The Strad - November 2011


"Lively and touching Beethoven voiced for the piano and viola. Viola players and the world’s curious Beethovians will need to have this."

Rob Barnett - Musicweb-international - March 2011
 


"This is a most interesting and valuable CD which should commend itself to all true Beethovenians as well as (naturally) to viola players..."
"The performances throughout are first-class in every respect, as is the recording quality." "...This is a well-merited addition to the Beethoven discography."

Robert Matthew-Walker
