It is an instrument of nuances, of fine shadings and veiled beauty. The viola especially inspired wonderful pieces from romantic composers who were searching for new sounds beyond the well-beaten path of virtuosity. For his new GENUIN CD, the magnificent violist Rainer Moog has put together an extraordinary programme that unites the apparently familiar and the truly unusual. He delivers a truly charismatic interpretation of the two splendid sonatas of Brahms, whilst the works of Robert Fuchs and Friedrich Kiel impressively stand by them, side by side: both their repertoire value and interpretations are outstanding.
