Description: The poignant Suite Concertante of 1940 for viola and orchestra – effectively a concerto for the instrument – is joined here by three substantial chamber works, two of them also from the 1940s (the Divertimento is from 1969 - don’t go by the opus numbers!) and all infused with Gál’s trademark lyricism. Hanna Pakkala (viola), Reijo Tunkkari (violin), Irina Zahharenkova (piano), Takuya Takashima (oboe).
