About the album

Unlikely other stringed instruments the viola repertoire hasn't been as thoroughly
explored, but this colourful anyhology of music for solo viola contains some of the
most challenging works. Famous for her soulful dedication to the viola Dana Zemtsov
takes the listener along to a world of warm, deeply touching sounds. She wants to
warn the listener for the music on her debut recording: ... here one will scarsely find
lyrical melodies and heartwarming beauty with which music is so often associated.
Instead, there will be tales of war, perplexed wanderings through obscured labyrinths,
intense cries of despair, sour tears of sorrow, maybe at places an ironic grinn...
For 2014 and 2015 Channel Classics and Dana agreed on two more recordings, one
with piano acccompaniment and another with orchestra.

Winner of numerous competitions and developing an outstanding career, Dana Zemtsov (b.
1992) is one of the most promising international viola soloists of her generation.
Highlights in the 2012 / 13 season include Dana’s performance of the Bartók Viola Concerto
in the Great Hall of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, chamber music with Janine Jansen
and Martin Frost during the Utrecht Chamber Music Festival and a recital in Carnegie Hall of
New York.

Dana is First Prize laureate of several competitions in Luxemburg, Italy, Austria, Germany,
Portugal and the Netherlands. In 2010 she won the Dutch Television competition ‘Evening of
the Young Musician’ becoming the ‘Young Musician of the Year’ and representing The
Netherlands at the Eurovision Young Musicians Competition in Vienna.
