Dominic Sewell - Suite for Solo Viola

Dominic Sewell - Suite for Solo Viola
This viola solo in five movements was commissioned by Christel Baillie for a recital in Hamburg in 2004. Although difficult, it has been particularly taken on as an audition piece or for final recitals at Conservatoires in the UK. It has become customary to select movements as each can function as a piece in its own right. The style is tonal with a harmonic twist and in total is about 12 minutes long.

Review "A welcome addition to the rapidly growing repertoire for solo viola, Dominic Sewell's 'Suite' consists of five movements that pose a variety of musical and technical challenges, suitable for a pupil heading towards or at diploma standard. The double stops in the first and third movements will need considerable practise by most players, and the fourth movement, marked "Freely" will require a lot of imagination (and a well developed trilling action), but the whole work is extremely well written for the instrument. The second movement, many of whose rhythms seem to echo Mendelssohn's 'Midsummer Night's Dream' scherzo, is charming and extremely satisfying to play (and slightly easier than it looks at first glance); the same goes for the expressive finale which uses the resonance of the key of C major on the viola to great effect." Matthew Jones, violinist, in Music Teacher July 2006
