Viola virtuoso Roger Benedict and renowned pianist Simon Tedeschi perform masterpieces by Debussy and Ravel for the rich, mellow tone of the viola – the ‘melancholy dreamer’, as Berlioz described it – together with the piano, which is the closest an individual instrument comes to a whole orchestra. With its wistful sound, the viola gives a new and fresh character to these pieces, which, even now, seem radical in their conception.Tedeschi and Benedict perform four of Debussy’s evocative Préludes, as well as the composer’s kaleidoscopic Cello Sonata. We also hear viola arrangements of Ravel’s lyrical Violin Sonata – a youthful work, left unpublished at his death – as well as his sensual Piece in the form of a Habanera and the soulful, melancholy Kaddisch.
