Cool Stuff I’m Listening To: September 30, 2012

I’ve been looking for a contemporary piece to put on my junior recital, hence the bundle of viola pieces here. Any suggestions??? I’d prefer a piece about 7-10 minutes long, more or less.

  • Simply Purple, by Joan Tower, for solo viola
  • Purple Rhapsody, by Joan Tower, for viola and orchestra
  • String Quartet, by Derek Bermel, for two violins, viola, and cello
  • Viola Zombie, by Michael Daugherty, for two viola
  • Diamond in the Rough, by Michael Daugherty, for violin, viola, and percussion

Unfortunately some of these look a bit difficult to get a hold of though, especially the Tower pieces. *sigh*

What do you think?
