Asturias from Spanish Suite for Solo Viola (Albeniz)

A great piece for Solo Viola based on Albeniz' famous Asturias. Actually less difficult to play than you may think !

Title Asturias, from Spanish Suite
Composer Isaac Albeniz
Arranger Patrick Loiseleur
Reference TPR-0017
Opus number Op 47 n°1
Instrumentation Solo Viola
Synopsis Originally written for solo piano, this piece has also been arranged for guitar by Tarrega, and for symphonic orchestra. The piano gesture of alternating between left hand and right hand is replaced by quickly alternating between two strings. While keeping the original G minor tonality, this arrangement makes great use of open strings, pizzicati, harmonics, double stops and other instrumental gestures that are typical for the stringed instruments.
