The works of Emanuel Moór (1863-1931) ought to be celebrated as among the major achievements of Romantic music, but because of Moór's peripatetic life - he was born in Hungary, studied in Vienna (with Bruckner), performed in the US and across Europe, became a UK citizen and settled and died in Switzerland - no country has claimed and promoted him to the degree he deserves. Moór's musical language offers a deeply satisfying blend of contrapuntal mastery and ardent lyricism, as the works on this album - written for or involving the viola - demonstrate. In time he will be recognized as one of the masters of his age.
