    Last summer, I wrote a set of nine miniatures for viola and piano, with each one evoking different moods. Isobel Doncaster - viola Yucong Huang - piano SoundCloud: Bandcamp: https://piershudson.bandcamp.com/album/nine-haiku YouTube:
  2. Identifying Classical Music
    Please help identify this 3 pieces of clarinet, viola, harp and flute sessions
  3. Today's Composers
    For all my fellow violists out there who are tired of seeing the limelight on their violinist and cellist colleagues, here's a little something I crafted to coax that limelight in our direction. Much of the inspiration came from nature, and in that regard, it sounds (I think) rather...

    Hi Everybody, All I have is this fragment, nothing more. 32 seconds with a gap in the middle: http://rjbuffalo.com/nerosubianco.mp3 Might anybody have a clue? Many thanks!

    I (in my 34 years) have tried to learn and play violin but I stopped because this instrument is really, really hard. The joints are required to be in extreme positions, it is hard to hold instrument more than 10 minutes, it is hard or even impossible to get high notes or to play on G string...

  8. Today's Composers
    Hello, It took a while, but I finally wrote my first movement to a symphony. But before I move on to really continuing, I would like your guys' opinions and critiques. This helped me last time, when I posted the first movement to my Viola Concerto, and I think it could help me for this piece as...
  9. Off Topic Pub
    (My apologies if this isn't the correct forum to put this in, I'm new here and very confused!) I'm a freshman girl and I adore classical music. I didn't really get into it until I was in seventh grade (lack of exposure.. my family is more classic rock than classical :P). So just to give you...
  10. Solved Cases (archive)
    So, I've got kinda the opposite problem from what you usually post in this forum for, but I wasn't sure where else to put it. I'd like to get the music to this Vanhal Viola Sonata, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anybody have any idea where I could find it?

    Looking for string quartet pieces where the viola is the main soloist. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  12. Today's Composers
    I finally finished my Viola Concertino. I posted the first movement earlier on, but now it's pretty much complete. It's my largest piece so far (at nearly 7 minutes, which for many of you, I'm sure, isn't a lot, but for me it's pretty long). I'd highly appreciate any criticism, suggestions, or...

    What are some of your favourite viola works? I've been looking for them a lot recently. Any contributions would be appreciated. Edit: I just saw on Stupid Thread Ideas that I have 1001 posts... making this the thousandth. Is it really that many already? What a nice Christmas present!
  14. Solo & Chamber Music
    Any opinions on some of the available recordings? Chandos, Delos, etc... I need a good performance of the trio for flute, viola and harp. Thanks!

    http://musescore.com/arturo_hernandez/quartet-no-2-in-e-minor Please, take a look at the score for the first movement of my second string quartet. If you have any comments, or suggestions, I would be happy to hear them. Thank you, I hope you enjoy.

    So I started playing the viola around half a year ago(I'm 16 years old). I have played piano for very long, so in theory it would just be learning the technique. Note that I haven't played the violin beforehand, I think only two years when I was a kid, never got far with it. Apparently I had a...

    I made this piece for string quartet, is an exercise. What do you think about it? Leave your comment below. I hope you like it. :)

    It's supposed to be gig music. I'm an amateur arranger/composer. I would appreciate feedback! http://musescore.com/arturo_hernandez/greensleeves-quartet-2
  20. Solo & Chamber Music
    I've been listening to a lot more of Ravel, particularly his string quartet, and I am just smitten with the 2nd movement, Assez Vif. It's so plucky and fresh and I find myself wanting more of that sound. I was wondering if anyone here knew other quartet or chamber (trios, quintets, etc) music...
