Y. BASHMET K. BASHMET

Yuri Bashmet has transformed the previously modest viola into a brilliant solo instrument in its own right. Brahms’ two sonatas, Op. 120, elegant and highly expressive, sublimate the extreme sensitivity of the viola with a simplicity that only perfect mastery of musical composition can achieve. The music of Brahms and Yuri Bashmet's viola were made to meet each other. Admirably accompanied by his daughter, Ksenia Bashmet, he takes us into a world of depth, virtuosity and aesthetic prowess.
