The Viola Air is a heartfelt love song in the form of a long arching lament, built around a simple and passionate theme woven through the strings. The principal idea is first heard on the solo viola and passes through to the violins and then a solo cello before slowly building towards a climactic statement about half way through. The music then subsides leaving the theme exposed in a more relaxed setting before arriving at its conclusion in quiet, calm suspension. (Paul Carr)
It was written for and is dedicated to Peter Sulski.
A version for viola with a piano reduction is available; catalogue number GM036.
There are also versions of this work for string orchestra without soloist (GMCO080) and also for full orchestra (GMCO081).
Duration: about 10 minutes
A PACK comprises one full score, string parts 4/4/3/4/2 plus a solo viola part
