Typically impassioned, committed performances distinguish Kim Kashkashian's
New Series recording of music for viola by three great Hungarian composers.
Kashkashian's intense focus, superb craftsmanship and explosive
virtuosity are brought to bear on Bartók's final work, on one
of Kurtág's early pieces, and on "Replica", an important new
composition written especially for her by Peter Eötvös.
