The Art of Lionel Tertis

One of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century, Lionel Tertis performed on his instrument the service that Casals did for his: that of raising it from the obscurity of orchestral rank-and-file to respected solo status. In addition to being a brilliant violist, Tertis made many arrangements and even designed his own model viola.
