Recommendations Sought

John Banville, a reader of this blog, asks:
Could you recommend a recording of Schubert's Sonata for Arpeggione, but with viola instead of cello? I have the britten/rostropovich and martha argerich/ mischa maisky versions. Thank you!
Anyone have suggestions? I've heard the Arpeggione on record only, with cello, not recently, and don't know a thing about recordings of it.

Not a whole lot of choices. I have Yuri Bashmet's. I remember not being too impressed by the pianist...

Amazon does list a few performances on viola, not, though, by famous viola players...
