Sonata for Viola.
Sonata for Viola. Composed during the student years and revised for this second edition, the Sonata for viola has neoclassical tints, partly imitating the styles of Shostakovitch and Hindemith. With three beats that respect the classic forms of sonata, ternary form and rondo, a work of medium difficulty is articulated for both interpreters and contrasting characters.
