Michael Isaac Strauss, viola; R. Kent Cook, piano

This program surveys three of the greatest works written for the viola in 1919. Each created in the shadow of WWI, these deeply expressive works celebrate a Neo-Romantic musical language. Two pieces were inspired by a competition championed by renowned arts patron Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge. Ernest Bloch earned first prize for his exotic and spiritual Suite for viola and piano. Second prize went to the unknown Rebecca Clarke for her sensuous and revolutionary Sonata for viola and piano. The third offering is Paul Hindemith’s “Brahmsian” effort—the Sonata in F, Op. 11, No. 4—written shortly after the composer served at the Western Front.
