Description: Contemporary music for viola covering various styles, most of it tonal, some of it suggestive of or suggested by popular elements (Euba and Morrill), some abstract (Turina and Cordero), some inspired by extra-musical sources, like Frank's triptych grounded in her interest in Native American material or Karpman's five-piece suite in arch form which explores melodies which move back upon themselves in circular, "round" fashion. Laura Klugherz (viola), Steven Heyman (piano).
