Rosalind Ventris's new album for Delphian, 'SOLA', finds her in the company of both contemporary and 20th century women composers who wrote solo repertoire for the viola. An album like this, showcasing works for solo viola written by women, is the first of its kind, taking us through the folk landscapes of Amanda Feery and Sally Beamish to Elisabeth Lutyens's defiant style and a beautiful solo suite by Imogen Holst. Hattie Butterworth caught up with Rosie in Foyles to learn more about the album and why she thinks it's important to advocate for this music.
