Imai, London Philharmonic
"Walton Viola Concerto, etc."

An imported Chandos recording, this features (in addition to the viola concerto) Walton's suite for string orchestra and his Hindemith variations.

I almost exclusively own this recording because of Ms. Imai's recording of the viola concerto. One of the pillars of viola literature, the Walton is the most traditionally romantic work in the instrument's canon. Ms. Imai's interpretation shows why she's a hero of the instrument.
