Description

On the violin Henri Vieuxtemps made his quick way from one success to the next, and Robert Schumann even compared him to Niccolò Paganini. However, the viola was his secret love, and he created some of his most beautiful compositions for it. Christian Euler and Paul Rivinius have set standards with their recordings of English viola music and works by Paul Hindemith, and their Vieuxtemps interpretations are guaranteed to delight avid viola fans and not only them! The cantabile playing style so typical of the Franco-Belgian violin school and such an important influence on Vieuxtemps and then on his pupil Ysayë is especially effective when executed on the viola. When Christian Euler plays the beginning of the Sonata op. 36 and its long melody lines and the standout Barcarole not only so very airily and freely but also with sonorous intensity, the result is pure listening joy. This delightful program has been produced in state-of-the-art, high-resolution Super Audio CD technology. If anyone wants even more luxury, it is recorded in 2+2+2 sound and can be experienced in genuine 3-D sound a sumptuous audio feast.
