In liberating the viola from its role as a secondary instrument, Brahms succeeded in establishing it as a worthy partner for the voice, just as the composer Charlotte Bray raises the instrument to the rank of soloist in the new piece that she has entrusted to Tabea Zimmermann. This is also a time for rediscovery: Loeffler’s melodies set to poems by Verlaine and Baudelaire, Kodály’s irresistible Adagio from his Brahmsian period, and an intimate Liszt piece inspired by Berlioz – a fervent defender of the viola’s own specific virtuosity.
