What are some of the most famous works for viola that you like, especially concertos? For example, there are so many for violin (Tchaikovsky/Sibelius/Paganini, etc) and several for cello (Dvorak/Elgar/Saint-Saens, etc) so what would the equivalent of these be for viola, besides the obvious of Walton and Bartok?
It seems to me that the most well-known pieces for viola are contemporary so I was just wondering if there were other "staples" of viola repertoire (solo and concerti) that I may have missed, particularly in the Romantic or Classical time periods.
Thanks in advance!
