Programme Notes:
The Bowen recital highlights some of York Bowen's lesser known works for viola and piano. In particular the short but surprising Piece in E-flat has remained unpublished to this date.

The students of ESMAE present the influence of Lionel Tertis (1876-1975) on the emergence of viola repertoire in the 20th century. A brief biographical context of the English musician is presented, where some aspects of his life connected with the appearance of outstanding works are shown, for his musical career as well as for the repertoire of the instrument.
