Description: The viola sonata is well nigh standard repertoire by now but we offer this new release for the variety of lesser-known Clarke, which includes a first recording - the five-minute long untitled piece, possibly from around 1918 whose asymmetrical rhythms, angluar melody and dissonant harmonies look forward to the late style of the Dumka and Prelude, Allegro and Pastorale. Philip Dukes (viola), Sophia Rahman (piano), Daniel Hope (violin), Robert Plane (clarinet).
