Christian Euler is a violist out of conviction and an enthusiastic chamber music player. He performed under the greatest conductors with the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra before he was appointed Professor at the University of Music and the Performing Arts in Graz in 1991.
His “Hommage à Lionel Tertis” has been recently issued on CD, on which Christian Euler and his piano partner Paul Rivinius have recorded three works of English masters. The programme consists of works for viola and piano by Arthur Bliss, Arnold Bax and Ralph Vaughan Williams.
In November, the British specialists’ journal THE STRAD wrote ” This well-fille CD is completed by Vaughan Williams’s Suite from 1934, seldom heard in its viola-and-piano guise. Euler’s playing in the eight short movements is utterly lovely, catching theinnocent charm of the `Carol´and `Christmas Dance´while dispatching the Moto perpetuo with rare virtuosity.”
