  • Instrumentation: Viola & Piano
  • Composer: Walton
"Walton's Viola Concerto is another one of 'The Big Three' viola concertos most often required at professional, orchestral and college auditions, and is perhaps the first great viola concerto of the 20th century. I love this piece because it takes both the audience and performer through a wide spectrum of emotions and musical expressions, from tragically lyrical themes of longing and pining to hurried and fast-paced forays. Walton also makes use of the entire range of the viola, and the concerto's technical demands are some of the greatest in all viola repertoire. A true masterwork for viola, and a necessary part of the serious violist's music library."
- Jesse Calcat, Viola, 2007 Shar Apprentice
