This recording was Rivka Golani's debut on the Centrediscs label, and was originally released as a vinyl disc in 1983. It won the prestigious Grand Prix du Disque Canada in 1985, and remains one of the most stunning examples of virtuosic viola playing ever recorded.
"Sound is magnificent, with a big ambience, and rich instrument tone. This is one of the most enjoyable discs to come from the Centrediscs collection."
- Andrew Marshall, Audio Ideas Guide
"We followers of modern music could all stand another CD or two of music played this well and chosen as intelligently as this."
- Stephen Ellis, Fanfare
"Viola Nouveau delivers passionate outpouring of musical brilliance... conveyed in works that are convincingly lifted out of this contemporary music."
- Richard Perry, The Whig-Standard Magazine
