The Hallé and viola virtuoso Sarah-Jane Bradley present a programme of four tuneful and atmospheric scores by British composers of the early twentieth century. Benjamin Dale’s large-scale Romance for viola and orchestra finds him at his most lyrical, while Canadian-born composer Ruth Lomon’s orchestration of Rebecca Clarke’s Viola Sonata is splendidly authentic, emphasising the romantic sensibility latent in Clarke’s piano score. Richard Walthew orchestrated his delightful Mosaic – a succession of eleven encores originally for clarinet and piano – for the celebrated Lionel Tertis, and here Sarah-Jane Bradley revels in its lyrical charm. The Suite in D minor by composer, violist and founder member of the London String Quartet, Harry Waldo Warner, completes the programme, and Sarah-Jane Bradley and the Hallé project this substantial three-movement work with insight and panache.
