Viola concerti

Post by caostotale »

Chronologically situated between his cello and violin concerti (1956 and 1970, respectively), here is Yevgeny Golubev's viola concerto:

Yevgeny Kirillovich GOLUBEV
Viola Concerto, op. 47 (1962) (arr. for viola/piano by the composer)

Bartok viola concerto

Post by Phillip210 »

Does anyone have a digitized score of the Bartok viola concerto (piano reduction) or know where one can be found. I have been asked to accompany someone at a competition (who will provide a printed score), but would like to have sight of a digital version to decide whether I will be able to do it with limited rehearsal on the day!

This composer's bio can be found at:

There are three viola concertos listed (dated 1943-44, 1952, and 1953). My best guess is that the G major piece is the second of these (as it was uncommon for any Soviet-era work to see publication in the same exact year of its composition).

• 2 dramatic fragments, op. 40, for viola and piano

Hello everyone,
I was asked to identify a piece of music, but was unable to do so. Perhaps someone here can help me.
A snippet of the work in question can be heard at the beginning and the end of the following documentary:



We know the following:
-The documentary is from 1967, which means that the piece must be older. It is definitively a 20th century work and I would estimate it to have been written after 1920.
-It is a work for viola and orchestra. The orchestration includes a celesta, as we can hear in the second snippet, which is an instrument rarely found in a concertante piece.
-This is only a hunch, but the documentary being Swiss leads to the presumption that the composer could be Swiss as well.

Thank you in advance.
Kind regards,
Mr. T
