The Power of Eight

Tabea-Zimmerman_WEB

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
