Hi Fabrizio, thank you for this work, perhaps an early one of your own transcriptions.

I'm hoping the original may just be on as a trombone solo - goodness knows how many super cello soloists' interpretations of this I've sat through as a horn player in concerts, waiting to play, though notably mainly in north London rather than the north west of England. I'll sort out the composer's (multiple) clefs once I get playing.

But I've downloaded the (now perhaps somewhat deprecated) Viola version here, to run past my colleague who is the local Alto Trombone tiger. The comments about de Smet may well be relevant,
and he'll probably tell me that only Alto trombonists should be attempting even the Cello version on the recital stage !

I have been a professional violist for years and I must say that this transcription is pretty hard to play but not impossible! We can easily compare to the hardest viola repertoire, but from my point of view, Walton or Hindemith concertos are much more difficult!

I agree with the first comment; the transcriber of this piece must have been a violin player. The preview of the first page doesn't do it justice; on the next two pages, a grand total of 13 measures are in C-clef, and even then they're mostly on the G string. 13 notes in the *entire piece* even use the C string. Most of the piece is on the A string, and require third position or higher. This is a poor transcription for viola. Luckily, I knew that going in and bought another arrangement (Leonard Davis, nearly identical to Robin de Smet's from what I could tell) separately.

I still bought the version here for the MP3s and MIDI piano files so I could play solo; it's all in the same key, so they work together, it's just the other arrangements are an octave or two lower. It's really good for that, but if you're expecting viola sheet music, you'll have to get that elsewhere. I gave 3 stars, averaging between 1 star for the sheet music and 5 stars for the accompanying music files.

the arrangement for viola is not very true to the original cello version, and most of the time everything is put in very high positions in the g-clef - which doesn't give justice to the full sounding lower register of the viola...I found another arrangement by Robin de Smet, where a much bigger part is in the lower register, thus getting closer to cello-like sound.
