'Apparently the viola is just a somewhat larger violin, simply tuned a fifth lower. In reality though, there is a world of difference between the two instruments.' - The composer lends weight to his argument with this impressive 'real' viola piece: extreme high notes are avoided, indeed, one movement is played exclusively on the C string.
