Viola Concerto

Viola Concerto


  • Instrumentation: viola and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
description
I partly discovered music through exercises. I did not distinguish between these exercises and Art. They were the same to me as Mozart or Schubert. Exercises have always been pure things for me, clean, unaffected by dreaded profundity. They are liberating and free, and I always feel good psychologically and physically after playing them. This Viola Concerto is, I suppose, a homage to their ecstasy. Gerald Barry
