Description: Another thoroughly satisfying entry in this series with an early (1924) solo viola sonata in the tradition of Reger, two works from his "silent period" of 1940-46 when he developed his own version of late romanticism and the 1956 flute Concertino, another example of Raphael's twelve-tone period which doesn't sound atonal. We hope there is more to come!
