On this release, Roger Chase plays the celebrated Montagnana viola, which Lionel Tertis used at the height of his career. Here Chase presents four of Tertis' own arrangements. The Delius second and third violin sonatas, together with John Ireland's cello sonata and second violin sonata (this CD marks the world premiere recording of Tertis' arrangement of Ireland's second violin sonata), make a revelatory program of viola sonatas, the plangent sound of the instrument bringing a new vision to these works.
