For his second CD release, 25-year-old, New York-born violist David Aaron Carpenter is joined by Vladimir Ashkenazy who leads the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. Together they perform the Symphony with Viola obbligato,"Harold in Italy," which Hector Berlioz originally wrote on a commission from Paganini. The present recording features, for the first time, an unpublished more virtuosic soloist part written for Paganini. The coupling is a showpiece, which Nicolo Paganini wrote after rejecting his earlier Berlioz commission;"The Sonata per la Gran Viola displays the highest virtuosic writing for this instrument," says David Aaron Carpenter, who defines his mission as focusing attention on the viola as a great solo string instrument in its own right. Recipient of the 2011 Leonard Bernstein Award and winner of the 2010 Avery Fisher Career Grant, David Aaron Carpenter has emerged as one of the world's most promising young artists. In 2006, he won the prestigious Walter E. Naumburg Viola Competition and in 2007, he became protege for The Rolex Mentor and Protege Arts Initiative, being the youngest in this mentorship programme's history. David Aaron Carpenter has been the protege of several major international musical figures, such as Pinchas Zukerman, Yuri Bashmet and Christoph Eschenbach.
