Extraordinary Ingenuity

Benjamin Yusupov's 'Viola
Tango Rock Concerto' -
reviewed by
HOWARD SMITH

'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.

The reason?..
