Here you can submit a link to youtube videos featuring live performance of pieces with viola as a leading instrument (concertos for viola and orchestra, viola sonatas, duo with viola...)

One recent recording I like very much is that of Frank Bridge's Lament for two violas.

Composer Frank Bridge (1879–1941) wrote the Lament for two violas as part of a pair of viola duos, which were debuted on March 18, 1912, with the composer and Lionel Tertis performing. The performance, which took place at Bechstein Hall (now Wigmore Hall), was part of a concert featuring the works of four young British composers: Cyril Scott, Benjamin Dale, York Bowen, and Bridge. No holograph of the Lament has been found, but sketches exist (upon which this
edition is based) in the Parry Room Library at the Royal College of Music in London.

Great topic!

Antonin Wranitzky, Concerto for 2 violas :

Except that the 3rd movement is missing. One complet recording I like a lot is this one, but it's audio only.

F. A. Hoffmeister, Thema with variations for viola solo :

To me it sounds a lot, in some places –especially the theme but not only–, like Mozart's 'twinkle twinkle' variations for piano. Looked it up on wiki, it seems they were friends. I'll have to learn this at some point, I've always like 'variations pieces'.

Interesting, wonder what the guy behind him is doing there! I checked various scenes in the video and he literally does not move (except once his pinky moved).

That aside, amazing what a talented musician can do with very limited movement other than arm and fingers. He really seems engrossed in his playing.

Thanks for sharing this. Very inspirational.

Nice piece. I think the guy maybe plays with him in other songs? He is just not involved with this piece?

Fantastic viola playing!
