Bruch’s hugely romantic work for solo cello (or viola, naturally) and orchestra has become a firm favorite, with its strangely disjointed and yearning melody giving it a wonderful vocal quality; you can almost hear the melody articulating the sacred words.
Not only has it never before been arranged for viola quartet, but here you get 2 versions. The first where the first player has the solo line throughout, and the second where it is shared equally by every player. How great is that?! 8 mins. M
