LÉVY, F.E.: Viola Music (Deubner, G. Kirkpatrick)


About this Recording

LÉVY, F.E.: Viola Music (Deubner, G. Kirkpatrick)

Despite a long and busy professional career as a cellist Frank Ezra Lévy’s work as a composer has been prolific, resulting in numerous commissions, a very well-received recording of orchestral music (Naxos 8.559234) and a post as the first composer-in-residence for the Concert Artist Program at Kean University in Union, NJ. Lévy’s works reflect a strong belief in the power of tonality. His pieces for viola range from the early Sonata for Unaccompanied Viola, the Second Viola Sonata which paraphrases a movement from Elgar’s Cello Concerto, and première recordings of two works written for Brett Deubner, soloist on this recording and a tireless champion of Lévy’s work.
