About

“Playing the viola means making it sing – making myself sing” declares Gérard Caussé, who makes this instrument, with its  special voice – deep, nostalgic and melancholy – sing like no one else does. This box set, which brings together an incredibly  wide repertoire, bears witness to the remarkable career that has made Caussé a viola legend.

The French violist Gérard Caussé is a world renowned maestro of his instrument. Internationally acclaimed, he performs as soloist, chamber musician and with orchestra. A professor of the viola class at the Conservatoire de Paris, Caussé has helped to enrich the viola repertoire by inspiring contemporary composers: Henri Dutilleux, Wolfgang Rihm, Betsy Jolas… among others.

2018 marks Caussé’s 70th birthday. This box highlights the wide range of the viola repertoire he recorded from 1979 to 2010 surrounded by first class artists. It includes Quintets by Mendelssohn with Quatuor Viotti which are here released for the first time on CD. All CD wallets are based on original album covers. The booklet includes an essay written by Gérard Caussé. No rival sets of similar viola collections currently available.
