Danilo Rossi, First Viola Soloist of La Scala Theater in Milano, accompanied by Stefano Bezziccheri at the piano, performs Johannes Brahms’ Sonata n. 1 Op. 120, initially wrote for clarinet and piano and dedicated to the clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld, and then transcripted for viola. The intensity of this work is enhanced by the the wonderful “viola Maggini” of the seventeenth century, which once belonged to the great Dino Asciolla and was kindly loaned by Valeria Mariconda Asciolla.
An intensive, reliable and suggestive execution, presented last November 18th 2010 at the Ridotto dei Palchi “A. Toscanini” of La Scala Theater in Milano, earning accolades from the audience.
This pieces is part of the album (CD+DVD): “Joannes Brahms – Sonate”, born from the collaboration between Limenmusic, Danilo Rossi and Stefano Bezziccheri.
