Display Ad in Listen Magazine for 'Russian Viola Sonatas' of Eliesha Nelson & Glen Inanga

[Russian Viola Sonatas; Eliesha Nelson, viola; Glen Inanga, piano; Sono Luminus DSL-92136 (2011) (71:02)]

AfriClassical wrote on July 30, 2011: “Violist Eliesha Nelson & Pianist Glen Inanga Make Strong Case for Varvara Gaigerova, Alexander Winkler & Paul Juon.” Shortly thereafter, on Aug. 12, 2011 AfriClassical posted: “ 'Russian Viola Sonatas explores important, compelling viola literature not commonly heard on other releases.'”

We have listened to the recording many times. As we expected on first hearing, the CD of Eliesha Nelson and Glen Inanga has deepened our appreciation for Russian Romantic repertoire. It has been a great delight to discover such accomplished composers, unknown to us prior to this release.

The Fall 2011 Issue of the magazine Listen: Life With Classical Music devotes half a page to an advertisement for the recording, released as Sono Luminus DSL-92136 and distributed by Naxos of America. It reads: “GRAMMY® nominated violist Eliesha Nelson teams up with pianist Glen Inanga to present a unique and eclectic program of early 20th century Russian viola masterworks – bridging pre-Revolutionary Russian viola pieces and early Soviet period compositions with 2 world premiere recordings.
