Benjamin Dale's Viola Music is a remarkable body of work, largely written just before the First World War, and the music's romantic grandeur is beautifully caught by Roger Chase's honey-toned viola. For total authenticity in music written for the great viola player Lionel Tertis, Chase plays on Tertis's beloved Montagnana viola, a large instrument with a gorgeous tone. A wonderfully rewarding programme is crowned by the world premiere recording of Dale's Introduction & Andante for Six Violas, whose dry title belies a sumptuously romantic outpouring, six violas creating the textures of a string orchestra. A hauntingly enjoyable discovery; and remember, you heard it first on Dutton Epoch.

“Clearly Dale was in love with the viola, and anyone listening to this will be too ...” American Record Guide, September/October 2008

“This is an outstandingly performed and recorded disc of richly rewarding viola scores that deserve to be heard. I enjoyed this recording from start to finish; undoubtedly one of my Records of the Year for 2008.” Michael Cookson, MusicWeb International, May 2008
