The world's most-renowned viola-player, Yuri Bashmet's commitment to music and musicians is phenomenal, not only as a soloist either in concerto or in recital, but also as a chamber player. Bashmet has championed the concertante works of Bartók, Walton, Hindemith and Shostakovich. He has been the inspiration of a number of contemporary works from composers such as Alfred Schnittke, Sofia Gubaidulina, Giya Kancheli, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Alexander Raskatov. He has recorded a solo CD for ONYX Reminicences, plus Japanese concertante works by Hayashi and Takemitsu
