View and Hear a complete performance.

Scott Slapin's Recitative for Solo Viola was commissioned for the 2008 Primrose International Viola Competition, founded in 1979 as the first international competition solely for violists. William Primrose served as chair of the jury for its inaugural year. The American Viola Society, through an endowment established by memorial contributions made by friends, colleagues, artists, and admirers, has sponsored the competition since 1986.

The winner of the 2008 competition was Dimitri Murrath.

The Competition continues to function as an inspiration to young artists. Over the last thirty years it has continued to attract the most distinguished jurors and most talented applicants worldwide. The Competition has an international reputation for identifying the talent of tomorrow and is respected for its artistic and professional integrity. Its laureates occupy principle seats of major symphony orchestras, act as professors in major centers of higher education, and have achieved success as international soloists.
