Sir Arnold Bax (1883-1953)

Viola Sonata • Concert Piece • Legend • Trio


It has become a cliché of musical history that the celebrated British viola-player Lionel Tertis generated much of the modern British solo viola repertoire when he encouraged young composers, notably those associated with London's Royal Academy of Music, to write works for him in the first thirty years of the twentieth century. Up till then the viola was very much the Cinderella of the orchestra, and there were few recognised soloists. All of Bax's viola works were written with Tertis in mind. While a student at the Academy Arnold Bax came under the influence of Tertis, who taught viola there, and Bax and his contemporaries responded to Tertis's enthusiasm and the quality of his playing – and the big tone he drew from a very large instrument.
