Podcast #2: Viola

This is the second in a series of podcasts designed to help both students and teachers get to know and write for some of the less commonly used instruments in the orchestra.  The viola is a wonderfully versatile member of the string family in the mid-range between violin and cello that too often gets overlooked.  Listen to some of the excerpts contained within this podcast and you’ll gain a new respect (and maybe some ideas of your own for composing) for this fascinating instrument.
