Notes & Reviews

Rosanna Weinberger, violist, and pianist Evelyne Luest team up and tear into some very meaty chamber music with high artistic ferocity and tender passion: Rochberg's "Sonata for Viola and Piano," Enescu's "Concertpiece for viola & piano," Noland's "Romance for viola & piano," Steinke's "Santa Fe Trail Echoes" for viola solo and Gabel's "Hellenic Triptych" for solo viola & digital electro-acoustics.

"...romantic... ambitious..." -- Brett Campbell (Eugene Weekly)

"A throwback to the time before gimmicky programming, "Passion" is for the diehard contemporary music lover... a new vitality to the Rochberg sonata." In Enescu's 1906 "Concertpiece" "...exquisite tone... Double stops flow effortlessly. Its finale flashes right out of a Victorian salon...Noland's selection will pacify the most frustrated person." In Steinke's "Santa Fe Trail Echoes," "...at her most impressive...her virtuosic tricks... intensity hold the piece together. Gabel's "Hellenic Triptych"...epitomizes imagination and courage in programming...wonderfully eclectic...beautifully rendered..."
-- Eleonora M. Beck (Sforzando)
