    The First Great Virtuoso of the Viola, Hardcover

To speak of the viola is to speak of that great musician Lionel Tertis, who has done more than any living to rescue his instrument from its former position as the Cinderella of stringed instruments and has inspired almost all the leading English composers of our time to write a work especially for him.
-Robert Elkin, 1944

Lionel Tertis (1876-1975) stands in the company of Ysaye, Kreisler, Casals, Thibaud and Rubinstein as one of the greatest instrumentalists - and arguably the greatest viola player - of all time. Many composers, including Bax, Holst and Vaughan Williams, wrote significant works for him; he was a member of a number of prominent string quartets; and he was later to design and promote his own 'Tertis model' viola. Tertis is virtually synonymous with the increasing importance of the viola as a solo and recital instrument alongside the violin and cello.
This biography, the first full-length survey of his life, tells how he rose from humble beginnings to become 'the father of the modern viola'. It explores in detail his long and distinguished career, persuading composers to write works for the viola, arranging existing works for the instrument, editing and performing, and teaching and coaching, notably at the Royal Academy of Music.
