Arrangement for viola and piano in A-minor (original version for violin and piano). Lionel Tertis gave the first performance of his transcription of Ireland's Violin Sonata No. 2 in 1918, with the composer at the piano, and it remained a mainstay of his recital programs for the rest of his career. This publication is a major addition to the romantic repertory for the viola. Tertis' fingerings and bowings are of great interest to students and scholars, so these are included for reference in the viola cue stave in the piano score; the viola part itself is left'clean'for performers to make their own decisions. The publication has been edited by the Tertis expert and viola professor John White, and it includes a full historical preface with German and French translations. Suitable for advanced standard performers. Contens: Allegro • Poco lento quasi adagio • In tempo moderato • Con brio.
