Description: Although music for solo viola is going to have an extremely small audience, this recital was too interesting not to import and offer here with music by some of the 20th century's composers who are both almost forgotten and very deserving of rediscovery. And, it's all tonal except for the short suite by violinist-composer Treiber who employs some playing techniques which the older generations don't but which add to the mood and wit and style of the various pieces. Sibylle Langmaack (viola).
