Excerpt from Ballade for Viola and Strings by Godfrey Ridout

This section of Ridout's Ballade for Viola and Strings displays the unique tone of the viola, which is not often heard as a solo instrument. The composer accompanies the viola with shimmering strings that dissolve into calmer rhythms and punctuations.
