Canfield-Moreno Estate
"The Paramour", Silverlake
Robert D. Farquhar (1923)

Nokuthula Ngwenyama, viola & Eckart Sellheim, piano


“A silent film star's grand, hilltop Mediterranean villa welcomes the brilliant young violist, Nokuthula Ngwenyama. Celebrated for the “bold, mesmerizing character” (Gramophone) of her playing, Ngwenyama performs music by Bach, Brahms (Sonata for viola and piano in E-flat, Op. 120), and the World Première of Los Angeles composer Byron Adams’ dramatic, melodic Sonata for viola and piano. “She projected a big, relaxed sound . . . and her lyrical themes had expressive beauty” (Cincinnati Inquirer).

Light reception.
