  • November 24, 2018 Exciting New Concert Piece for Viola

    The unique timbre of the viola presents a challenge to arrangers. It is easily smothered by the piano. I have taken great pains to create transparency in the piano accompaniment, allowing the viola to play expressively and with beauty of sound. This arrangement consists of two parts, a version for...

    Solo Viola and Piano, and an orchestrated version for Solo Viola, String Orchestra and Piano. The Solo Viola part is identical in both versions, and the piano accompaniment coordinates seamlessly with the orchestra version.This solo viola version of Le Grand Tango is providing a new generation of violists with an exciting concert piece that is proving to be an instant favorite with audiences. Brett L Allen is a violist with nearly 40 years professional orchestral experience. He is Assistant Principal Viola of the Columbus (OH) Symphony Orchestra and a member of the Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra. He is published by Oxford University Press, Berben, and Watchfire Music.
