Compositions with the viola in it?

Hi! I'm a viola player too... If you're looking for compositions in which the viola is the solo player for a concerto there are plenty:

1) Bartok Viola Concerto for Viola and Orchestra (very difficult, but exciting!)

2) Viola Concerto No. 1 in D Major by Carl Stamitz (a very popular piece; basis for most auditions)

3) Viola Concerto No. 1 in G Major by Telemann

4) Viola Concerto in D Major by Hoffmeister

5) Ÿ Symphonie Concertante for Violin and Viola With Orchestra K. 364 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (very fun duet concerto!)

If you're looking for Viola and Piano pieces here's a really good and popular piece:

1) Ÿ Sonata Arpeggione in A minor for Viola and Piano by Franz Schubert

And let's not forget the most popular viola solo:

1) Ÿ Six Cello Suites for Viola by J.S. Bach (Suite No. 1, Suite No. 2, Suite No. 3, Suite No. 4, Suite No. 5, Suite No. 6)
