Review By Patricia Pollet,Stringendo,October 2008

The great 20th-century violist William Primrose made many transcriptions thoughout his career to enliven his programs and compete with repertoire of the more traditional virtuoso instruments. From Naxos comes a collection of these transcriptions played by Roberto Diaz on Primrose’s own early Amati instrument.

Chilean-American Diaz, principal violist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and recently appointed director of the Curtis Institute of Music, gives a personal account of these works.
