Berlioz: Harold in Italy, Pagannini: Solo for Viola and Orchestra

I know I’m biased, having had to listen to the Overture to Beatrice et Benedict by Berlioz on repeat recently for an audition but it’s such a fun work. Although it’s not the key work on the new recording from maestro Vladimir Ashkenazy it’s well worth the price of the record just for this upbeat and exciting rendition. However Harold in Italy follows, with the Violin obbligato expertly performed by David Aaron Carpenter. Rounding it all up with the exquisite, could have only ever been written by Paganini, Sonata for the Grand Viola and Orchestra.
