Viola

Viola

Discover this wonderful, strong and warm instrument, too long in the shadow, which Brahms, Reger, Bach and all the great composers of the 20th century give finally it rightful place. Try the wonderful viola concerto (2003-2004) of Jindrich Feld (1925-2007), one of the greatest Czech composer, with this extraordinary orchestration. Probably the best viola concert ever written.
