About

A tribute to William Primrose (1904-82), the Scottish viola player who gave his instrument the same status as the violin. He became immortal for having commissioned, created and recorded the last work by Bartók in 1945, a Viola Concerto available here in a remastered edition, together with Tibor Serly: Bartok's student who had ensured the completion and publishing.

This first etching is resurrected here with three other examples of Mozart, Berlioz and Walton, played with the exceptional beauty of his prestigious instruments: an Andrea Guarneri (1697) and two Stradivarius, McDonald (1700) and Gibson (1734). A miracle of restoration.
