Is there an equivalent piece of ziguenerweisen for the viola

I’ve always loved the style and sound of the piece ziguenerweisen by sarasate, and wish there was something similar to it to play on viola. I’ve always liked that fast virtuosic music of the violin. Sure, you could transpose it down a fifth but it still just isn’t the same. Any similar pieces anyone knows of?

Do violas ever get exciting parts in songs?

I love the sound of the viola and I want to begin taking lessons to learn how to play. My ultimate goal is to develop enough skill to be able to play with others in something like a community orchestra. My only concern is that I've heard that violas rarely get the melody or, in general, interesting/exciting parts of songs. Is that true? I'm worried I'll lose motivation to practice if the music is going to be so monotonous and tedious.

Viola Names

I wanted to name my viola when I first got it 7 years ago. It took me 7 years to come up with a name for it. I found the perfect one.

She is called Moxie May.

Moxie for the joy I get from playing with people in jazz, folk, blues, bluegrass, orchestra - going to jams and playing like I have no shame and loving it, even when I'm wrong and learning.

May for the name of the month many years ago that I tried to die. May in honor of the rebirth that happened since then, and my viola that make it worth it to stay alive. Now I can say if I have enough Moxie, I may be okay.

But for 7 years I wondered how to name it. The right name eluded me. I loved it even though it had no name. I didn't want help, I needed to figure it out by myself.

Now that it's named I can ask, how did you guys name your violas? Did it happen immediately, or did it take a while? Any stories to share about how you came to the name?

Need a Viola Solo

I’m really looking for a viola concerto /sonata that’s more melodic than virtuosic. The closest I’ve come to this description was the second movement of JC Bach’s viola concerto in C minor, but I’m done with that piece now.

To be clear, I don’t mind tough passages in the piece, I just want melodic composition for personal enjoyment.

Playing Viola is tireing

I found a viola in my dad's basement and started playing. I'm taking lessons aswell. One thing I find is that when I practice, not even for very long, like 15 minutes or more, my left hand gets really tired. I'm not very athletic so I might just be a fatass. My teacher also told me that my Viola was a bit strange because the body was very heavy and the walls were very thick so it might just be that.

It's a 15 and a half inch Viola btw.

Recommendations for an Electric Viola

Hello!

I'm mostly interested in using the instrument as a controller for computer-generated synthesis (Pure Data). I've done this recently by hooking up a contact mic to my acoustic viola and using pitch and amplitude detection. But this means that you always hear the viola sound- which is nice if it blends well with the synthetic sound (like some purer oscillators-based sounds), but annoying if it doesn't (eg. something more noise based). Latency is also an issue, since you always hear the viola before the electronic output.

I've been looking at some lists online:

https://sound-unsound.com/best-electric-viola/

https://violacentral.com/best-electric-violas-review/

The second list is kind of confusing as it seems to include some acoustic instruments and some electric violins (It calls the Yamaha SV-130 an Electric Viola, but it seems to actually be a violin). Now I've read tha

Can Romainian Violas cost as low as 250$?

I'm asking this because a couple years ago my father bought a "Romanian" Gliga Viola on a site called, violinlovers.com. I'm in need of a new Viola as mine is too small for me, and I'm wondering if this instruments on site and other sites like this are authentic.

My father did some research prior on the site and found that they were based in L.A. (Now they're based in Las Vegas) and he talked to a woman who said that all their instruments are authentic Gligas from Romainia. I'm pretty sure there was some informational video on the instruments they get from Romainia.

I'm not sure if I want to buy from that site anymore, I really don't want to be scammed. However, my Viola that I bought from the website is pretty good quality for $250~. It has a label inside the F hole saying it is from Romania. The label looks pretty authentic as far as I can tell, I'll make sure to provide a picture as soon as I can.

5 string viola - with A on top and Low F on bottom.

I did it. I used carbon fiber instrument so as to not damage viola with tension. Used 1/4 size cello G string tuned down to F.

It was wonderful for a little while. The people who heard it said it sounded very cool. But the low F string wobbled, wouldn't stay at a consistant tone. I left it strung like that for about 2 weeks, thinking it would settle in. It didn't. Then I noticed my bridge was pulling towards the cello string, slid quite a bit to the left by tension. I immediatley took the cello string off and restrung C-E.

It was great because I was doing something I always wanted to do, and something no one I knew had heard of before. It was a good experiment, but it didn't work.

I wanted to share with viola community because I can't be the only person who has wanted this. And I want my F string back, and my E string gone. Has anyone else tried this? Results? Thoughts? Concerns?

Established Violinist crossing into Viola Advice

Hey All, I was interested in learning viola, but in contrast to to usual beginner narrative (new young person) my situation is a little bit different, and I was interested in gathering some opinions from people who have switched from violin to viola. A bit of background, I have a degree in Music (so i can read, write, sight sing, keyboard, play at the college level, and know some history) , and have been studying violin since youth (Modern and baroque in the last 3 years or so) (I'm 30 now). I also spent 10+ years on bass/guitar, play viol da Gamba, and am planning to return to grad school.

There seems to be a few pieces of general wisdom that get thrown at beginning students that I'm not sure how to treat given my circumstances.

  1. Get a private teacher.

So I understand where this is coming from, and generally agree with the premise, but I'm wondering to what extent I need a separate high skill teacher? I'm continuing violin study with a very good violin private teacher I've worked

Best Book of Etudes for Re-learning Viola?

I played viola from 4th grade through college and used to be pretty good, but it's been years since I've played with any regularity. Does anyone have recommendations for good books for getting back into it? I'd be particularly interested in books of fun etudes--I know that to some extent I just have to drill things back into my fingers and brain, but I don't know if I have it in me to just do hours of scales/arpeggios/bowing exercises. Something with a little oomph to it would make it much easier.

I don't have any real goals (just doing it for myself, not planning to perform or anything), so anything that just helps me sound good enough that my roommates don't hate me and helps me have fun playing would be great.

Not sure if this is allowed here... but I have two very adjustable viola accessories I am trying to sell. I just moved to a new system and am trying to recoup some of the cost.

I have a Kreddle chin rest system, that can be adjusted in almost every way. Check out their website

These go for 90 new, I'd be willing to do 70 shipped.

I also have my amazing Korfker malleable shoulder rest. This shoulder rest can be adjusted in almost any way you see fit. This is the only shoulder rest that has NEVER fallen off my viola whilst playing. I'd have to say this is the best and most versatile shoulder rest I have tried.. I've been playing for over 17 years and love new technologies, so that is a lot of shoulder rest tried. more shoulder rest info

I'd like to get 250 from this. One of the pads is a little worn, but there are two more sets that come with it. All tools and accessories included.

Timbre of the C string changed after a flight? I examined my viola, and the sound post was the only thing I could find at a glance. Is this normal or am I imagining things? Any options for restoring the original timbre?

Any virtuosic pieces for the viola?

Are there any virtuosic pieces for the viola that are like a ysaye sonata or Paganini caprice for the violin? I know the Paganini Viola Sonata is somewhat virtuosic, but I don’t know any others. I understand that it is very out of character for the viola to play virtuosic pieces but I would just like to have some fun learning a really difficult and virtuosic piece.

Need some viola string suggestions!

So, I have neglected my viola and haven't bought new strings in quite some time. I currently have Obligato medium gauge strings, but I can't afford them anymore. ( v broke right now )

Does anyone have any suggestions for string sets? I was thinking about Jargars. I've had them before but I didn't love the A string. But my price range is around $40-$80. Help is much appreciated!

Amelie and Viola?

I just got the results of my Harmony test today and it’s another girl! So of course I went straight to names... so, at the risk of burning myself out way too early again, let’s get this discussion going.

You may remember me being very annoying until I finally named my daughter, Amelie Dawn. I still have regrets about her name and I am determined to LOVE this baby’s name. My husband named the last one so this is almost completely all me!

I’m currently drawn to Viola. At first I was turned off because of the strong musical instrument connection, but I keep coming back to it and it’s grown on me even more. The sounds are beautiful and honestly, what’s wrong with being connected to a musical instrument? I love V and long O sounds. I like the syllable count. I like the popularity. I don’t think it clashes with Amelie, although other names on my list probably β€œgo” better, but I don’t like them as much.

Please be kind, what do you think?

Other names on my list are Caroline, Clara/Claire,

Beginning violin vs viola

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and want to learn another instrument. I've played the piano since I was 3 (nearly 20 years now as I'm 23 years old), and I play the ukulele and guitar too. I'm hypersensitive to loud and high noises due to my autism, and have tiny hands. I also have fat/thicc fingers and some trouble with my fine motor skills. In terms of music, I'm pretty familiar with music theory and my taste in music is really diverse. I like everything from rap and hip-hop to jazz and country, pop, rock, and a bit of classical music too. Since I'm Finnish, I could do what everyone expects me to and learn basically everything Sibelius ever wrote for the violin πŸ˜‚ I want to learn either the violin or the viola, but I can't decide which one to pick. Which one do y'all think I should pick? I know I'll probably get pretty biased answers from violists, but that's exactly why I've also posted this on r/Violinist and r/lingling40hrs.
