1986 Original. Features Works By Britten, Liszt, Vaughan-Williams And Others. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Recommended. “Perhaps None Of The Composers Of This Lovely Set Of Works For Viola And Piano Had In Mind The Death Theme Surrounding The Winter Solstice, The End Of The Season Of Growing, A Time For Pause And Even Sleep To Prepare For The Rumblings Of Rebirth, But That Is What Comes To Mind While Listening To This Very Well Chosen Collection Of Elegies. Violist Kim Kashkashian And Pianist Robert Levin Seem Extensions Of Each Other, So Well Melded Are These Performances. While Most Will Be Familiar With The Gorgeous Benjamin Britten 'Lachrymae, Reflections On A Song Of Dowland', There Are Enough Unfamiliar Works To Spark Even The Most Experienced Listener. Some Highlights Are The Vaughn Williams 'Romance', The Adagio Of Zoltan Kodaly, And The Vieuxtemps 'Elegie'. The Spectrum Even Manages To Include Elliot Carter's 'Elegy' So You Can Rest Assured There Is A Wide Spread Of Periods And Oddly Enough They All Create A Cohesive Program. Kashkashian's Tone Is Never Forced, Always Refined, And Never Pushing Towards Heart On The Sleeve. This Is A Beautiful Recording, Especially For Winter Nights. Highly Recommended.” Grady Harp, December ’05.
