ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Bach to Keith Jarrett, Patricia McCarty's performances on five continents have been acclaimed for communicating "a dark tone analogous to the quality of a fine tawny port" (Strad), and "the fine blue-flamed torch of her mind" (Ottawa Citizen). Her recordings for Northeastern, ECM and Ashmont, featuring viola works by Clarke, Bach, Telemann, Schubert, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann and Jarrett have been cited Gramophone's "Critics' Choice" and Strad "Selection CD." Ms. McCarty is a faculty member of the Meadowmount School of Music.

American pianist Eric Larsen has performed in the major concert halls of Russia, Europe, South America, Asia and the U.S. His discography on the Melodiya, Russian Disk, Equilibrium, Naxos, Albany and HM Productions labels includes the Chausson Concerto and Piano Trio, complete Trios of Brahms, complete Trios and Quartet of Turina, as well as trios of Beethoven, Dvorak, Ravel and Tchaikovsky. He is on the Artist-Faculty of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and is Director of the Meadowmount School of Music, where he also teaches piano and chamber music.

One of five composers generously promoted by Brahms to his publisher, Robert Fuchs taught composition to Mahler, Wolf, Enescu, Sibelius, Zemlinsky, and Korngold. Fuchs composed his Viola Sonata in 1899, and brought to a close the entire chapter of German and Austrian romantic music with his deeply nostalgic Phantasiestucke for viola and piano, written shortly before his death in 1927.

Lifelong friend of Brahms, violinist Joseph Joachim was one of the most widely respected musicians of the 19th century. His Hungarian Jewish heritage is reflected in the Variations on an Original Theme, proclaimed by Robert Schumann to be "one of the greatest of masterpieces."

Antonin Dvorak played viola in the orchestra of the Czech National Theatre. After recommendation by Brahms to his publisher launched international success, Dvorak revisited a movement from a previously unsuccessful string quartet, refashioning it into the Romance for Violin and Piano or Small Orchestra, Op. 11. This viola transcription offers a new perspective of this beloved work.
