Viola Concerto

Viola Concerto

(”A Hut in Toyama”)

for viola and chamber orchestra


  • Instrumentation: viola and chamber orchestra
  • Edition: performance material
  • Order No.: LSL 10515

Description
The long dark nights of the southern winter solstice were a strong influence for Gavin Bryars whilst composing this substantial viola concerto. Pairing the warm expressive range of the viola with a combination of generally low instruments appeals to Bryars preference for the lower ranges and resonates with the timing and location for the work’s premiere. The solo part was written for Morgan Goff who has played in Bryars’ ensemble for almost 20 years.
