Howdy... anyone reading this played Clarke's Sonata for viola and piano? I'm just now learning it and there's one passage that has me scratching my head and wishing I had a teacher still.

Anyone out there? I'm going to cross post to 'viola revolution' btw.

I think I've heard of it, but I haven't played it. Is it a super famous piece?

I suspect it's fairly well known, though not so much as something like the Bach cello suites. It's modern.

I played a Yuriy Hristev Tchechmedjiev viola at the Orpheus Violin house (Sacto) this last weekend. Not as dark of a sound as I like (it was new), but really clear, clear tone. Worth checking out even if I remain obsessed with my Fairfax .

wow. you are a hard core violist *runs off to cuddle not as prestigious viola*.

btw, you can post concert info and stuff, if we're in the area, that would be great and helpful.

Hell, I haven't played much in the last couple of years. B'sides, Fairfax isn't about any kind of viola snobbery, from what I know... If you're ever looking at upgrading I find Fairfax's instruments to be well worth it; much better sound for far less cash. They seemed to be all the rage here in the northwest, at least for a while.

What part of the world are you in?
