The four English composers represented on this disc were all born within a generation, and were inspired by the pioneering violist Lionel Tertis. Bainton’s 1922 Viola Sonata veers restlessly between autumnal song and militaristic intensity, possibly influenced by his wartime experiences. Theodore Holland’s Suite in D is a theatrical, wide-ranging work full of ingenious themes, whilst York Bowen’s Piece for Viola is brief but ardent. Bantock’s Viola Sonata, by contrast, is a large-scale, powerful and rhapsodic statement full of profuse lyricism and romantic feeling.


   




Review By Gil French,American Record Guide,November 2012

In this world premiere recording of the 22- minute Viola Sonata (1922) by Edgar Bainton (1880-1956) Sarah-Jane Bradley gives long-lined lyrical sweep to the music at every tempo, as Christian Wilson adds rich instrumental atmosphere with points of light in the treble and a full bass.
