In Memoriam
When Emanuel Vardi passed away in January 2011, the music world lost a remarkable musician and a unique human being.  Very few, if any, can compare with his remarkable achievements as one of the greatest violists within memory, as well as his excellence as a violinist, conductor, and composer.  The program includes rare long-out-of-print performances and a never-available-before live recording of the Walton Viola Concerto.
