Walton - Concerto for Viola - Andante Comodo - Joyalene Ng
Walton - Concerto for Viola - Andante Comodo - Joyalene Ng Concerto for Viola (1929)
I. Andante comodo

By William Walton (1902-1983) was a British composer and conductor. When commissioned to write this viola concerto he admitted to knowing very little of the viola except that it made a rather awful sound! To me this piece portrays a lyrical and melancholy mood despite its moments of dissonance. If it sounds too awful, you can blame int on Walton's perception of the viola.

Performers:
Joyalene Ng, viola;
