Default Playing piano pieces on other instruments.

Who has played piano pieces on another instrument.

Example: Last summer at a wedding I had a flute play Eric Satie "Gymnopedie #1" with the piano accomp.

I'm thinking about playing Chopin "Prelude #4 in E minor" on the viola with piano or whatever.

So are you saying that you find limitations in the range of your viola?
