Despite being a medium that has inspired composers for over three hundred years, the repertoire for two violas is still relatively underexplored and consequently unappreciated. Not for much longer!  Peter Mallinson and Matthias Wiesner are members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and have been giving concerts together as a Viola Duo since 2013, performing regularly around the UK and Europe. They have recorded two CDs on the Meridian Records label and work closely with many composers and arrangers. Friends of NNMF spent a wonderful evening with Peter and Matthias at the 2018 Christmas concert; their festival programme will show a great deal more about what is possible on two violas, including legendary violist Lionel Tertis’s spectacular take on a Handel passacaglia.
