Benjamin Yusupov's 'Viola
Tango Rock Concerto' -
'The work has a substance and impact that took me quite by storm.'
For openers the Viola Tango Rock Concerto's accompanying booklet (text) reads like some over rich informational Christmas pudding.
Having digested a morass of indulgent writing, the proof of the pudding is a work of extraordinary ingenuity, considerable gravitas, and instant appeal.
Hardly surprising the 2009 Bogotá audience received this fine world premiere recording with vociferous, sustained applause.
