Description


Yue Yu - viola

Anthony Hewitt - piano


British composer, York Bowen (1884-1961), is known as the ‘English Rachmaninov’, and like his Russian counterpart, the emotional language of his music spans the whole gamut, from vulnerable tenderness and richly-hued late-romanticism to volatile power and virtuosity.  Best known for his writing for the piano, York Bowen was also an accomplished violist, and in this programme prize-winning violist Yue Yu presents some of Bowen's lesser-known music for viola, including pieces originally scored for cello.
