We’ll celebrate some of the exquisite music written for the violin’s darker cousin, including music by Hindemith and Walton
Of interest in tonight's broadcast, Paganini's "Terzetto concertante for Viola, Cello and Guitar in D major, II."
It is an interesting combo, if you ask me. A traditional trio would feature something like flute, viola, and cello with a keyboard (organ, harpsichord, or piano) in the background holding things together. When the guitar picks up the third voice, the keyboard is not needed. Perhaps this is more of a duet with guitar accompaniment?
