Event description

Description

Jethro Marks, viola
Mauro Bertoli, piano

Jethro Marks, principal viola of the NAC Orchestra, and Mauro Bertoli, professor of piano at Ottawa University, present a program of emotionally charged and virtuosic music for the viola and piano. Not often viewed as a solo instrument by the majority of composers, the viola had a few compositional champions through the nineteenth century who left remarkable works that exploit it’s rich, dark timbre. Among them were Johannes Brahms, who wrote two sonatas for the viola and piano at the end of his life, and Henri Vieuxtemps, who was well known as a violinist, but turned to composing for the viola near the end of his life.
