  • July 15, 2008 Editing issues

    I am unsure on the accuracy of the editor. I have a few recordings of the Vieuxtemps Elegie, and some articulations/bow markings in the music seem unnecessary or incorrect when compared to the recording. Also, the editor missed a low C# in bar 31.

  • September 04, 2007 This is not your fathers music!

    Believe it or not my 17 year old loves this. She played it for summer recital, and she got a standing ovation. Does a father proud to hear such a nice piece of music coming from a teen. Fingers crossed she continues with viola playing in college. PS now all...

    I need to do is get her to play some fiddling music on the viola and I'll be happy as a clam.:)

  • August 17, 2007 Voila, Viola!

    Two of my students introduced me to works for viola by Henri Vieuxtemps and once I heard Roberto Diaz's rendition of many of the composer's works I was more than sufficiently motivated to learn them. This summer I worked up both the Elegie and the Capriccio for performances...

    at the American Suzuki Institute at Stevens Point in August. The Elegie, in particular, was received with great enthusiasm. It is a work whose colors and brilliance are wonderfully suited for the viola. There are many technical "land mines" to challenge both professionals and advanced students but the rewards are worth exploring this piece for. One should note that there are a couple of errors in the viola part but they were not difficult to figure out and correct. A consummate pianist is needed for the Elegie, as there is rapid legato passagework that demands the utmost in clarity. What a blessing to find such fabulous music that has not been widely recognized!
