DALE, B.: Viola Music (Complete) (The Romantic Viola) (Yuko Inoue, S. Coombs)

Benjamin Dale’s compositions are relatively few in number but of great distinction. In particular it was Dale’s friendship with Lionel Tertis, the father of modern viola playing, which inspired a series of outstanding works for the instrument. The monumental Suite for Viola and Piano in D major combines virtuosity and beautiful melodic writing, while the single movement Phantasy for Viola and Piano opens and concludes with a sublimely memorable tune. Written for Tertis and his pupils, the Introduction and Andante for Six Violas was described by Dale’s teacher, Frederick Corder, as “a work of remarkable beauty, power and originality”.
