ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Scott Slapin and Tanya Solomon perform new viola duos by Gerald Busby, Richard Lane, Patrick Neher, Frank Proto and Scott Slapin. All of these duos were written for Scott and Tanya within the past two years. The Richard Lane duo is one of two final pieces he was working on at the time of his death in September 2004, and this CD is dedicated in his memory.

"In all, the CD bears witness to the healthy musical life going on in America, both on the creative and the recreative fronts. I should add that the performances are absolutely brilliant, with both players perfectly attuned to each other, and have been realistically recorded." - The Strad (Carlos Maria Solare, November 2005)

"The performers are well matched and balanced throughout and seem to handle the huge technical demands of this repertoire effortlessly...it's nice to know that there is progress beyond where the Bartok duos left us." - The Canadian Society Newsletter (James Legge, Autumn 2005)

"Slapin's Nocturne...shows Scott's great talent not only as a violist but as a composer...Slapin and Solomon play with passion, technical brilliance, and a great authority on this noteworthy addition to the recorded viola literature. The duos recorded here explore not only the rich sonority created by two violas, but also their virtuosic potential; Slapin and Solomon succeed on both accounts." - The Journal of the American Viola Society (Sel Kardan, January 2006)
