    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;
    Cynthia Westerbeck, piano accompaniment
