Considered the first really modern violist, legendary Scottish musician William Primrose first came to prominence with the violin in the 1920s, turning to the viola on the recommendation of his greatest mentor, Eugene Ysaye. This programme includes four Paganini Caprices, which did more than any other of Primrose's recordings to spread his fame among his peers, as well as two major works written especially for him: Arthur Benjamin's Sonata, and Roy Harris's Soliloquy and Dance. Primrose performs here with numerous noted accompanists, and alongside Jascha Heifetz in Halvorsen's Passacaglia. This is the second of two volumes, the first of which is on 8.111382. The recorded legacy of William Primrose is well known, but newly re-mastered editions from our Historical catalogue always generate interest. The sonic results with this recital by 'absolute stars' (MusicWeb International on 8.120607) producer David Lennick and restorer Graham Newton makes this the new standard bearer for these legendary recordings. This release joins volume one on 8.111382 to make an eminently collectable pair.
