I’ve learned most of the main solo viola repertoire. Recent concert performances of solo and chamber music have included works by Bach, Beethoven, Borodin, Brahms, Britten, (Arnold) Cooke, Debussy, Feldman, Genzmer, Hindemith, Hoffmeister, Kodaly, Lachner, Mozart, Musgrave, Purcell, Schubert, Schulhof, Schumann, Shostakovich, Telemann. I also commissioned Peter Nagle to write me a piece for solo viola (Le tombeau de Feldman).
