Clint Needham's 9-minute Viola Music is a dramatically paced powerhouse in three movements. The opening Perpetual Motion and Cadenza is a dazzling ride, full of idiomatically-voiced double stops culminating in a free recitative. The following Song is beautifully plaintive, with a frisky episode in the middle, and the final Scherzo is a frenetic dance developed from where the opening movement left off, and wildly driving to a fiery coda. Advanced.
Item B410, formerly titled Ensembles for Viola Vol. 3, is now titled Violas in Concert. It is a collection of viola ensembles arranged and composed by Elizabeth Stuen-Walker. The classical collection includes pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Corelli, Dvorak, Seitz, Shostokovich, and others. The uniqueness of this collection is that the melodic material is shared among the different parts equally, making them more enjoyable to play and perform.
