Elaine Fine
American Record Guide, September 2011

Tertis, the British violist who commissioned his compatriots to write difficult (and excellent) solo music for the viola, and is therefore responsible for elevating the viola from its pre-20th Century status as a mostly inner-voice instrument with limited literature to a dignified solo instrument. A viola ensemble like this one, made of members of the viola section of the Munich Philharmonic, is something that would make Tertis proud. Listening to it makes me (even more) proud to be a violist.
