Bénédicte Royer, viola and Bettina Leitner, organ, venture a programme with rarely heard repertoire, introducing unforeseeable sound effects: with their upcoming release, Royer and Leitner present works for the seemingly exotic combination of viola and organ from the 20th and 21st century. Starting with the Fantasi (1919) by the Swedish composer Karl Yngve Sköld, there are two pieces by the British York Bowen, the Fantasia for viola and organ and Poem, op.27, for harp, solo viola and organ. The Sonata da chiesa for viola and organ (2015) by the Austrian composer and organ player Ernst Ludwig Leitner refers to the Sonata da chiesa for viola d’amore and organ (1938) of the Swiss composer Frank Martin, which is dominated by his own style of incorporating dodecaphonic writing into a tonal environment.
