Tabea Zimmermann: The Power of Eight

LED BY TABEA ZIMMERMANN, THREE FASCINATING MUSICAL VOICES ARE UNITED IN THIS PROGRAM THAT CELEBRATES THE VIOLA.

- Londoner York Bowen, a viola player himself, was also a fine pianist, and often acted as accompanist to the legendary violist Lionel Tertis. It was for Tertis and his students that Bowen composed this rhapsodic Fantasia

- Paul Hindemith was another viola-playing composer, and his final chamber work, the zesty Octet, includes not one but two violas; the finale features a particularly virtuosic part for first viola ' a part Hindemith himself played at the first performance

- Yehudi Menuhin regarded his teacher George Enescu as the greatest musician he had ever met, and; you get some sense of Enescu's titanic achievements when you hear his bold, beautiful Octet ' a symphony in all but name ' which he composed when he was still in his teens
