Frank Bridge: Allegro appassionato
Maxim Rysanov is re-defining the art of viola playing for a new generation. “Romantic expression”, says Rysanov, is the thread that unites the half-dozen works on his solo debut disc with Taiwanese pianist Evelyn Chang. Spanning the better part of two centuries, all of the works on this recording stem from a particular romantic – or romanticized – perspective.
