Ballade II
for viola and string orchestra

Godfrey Ridout
Composition Date: 1980
Genre: Orchestra / Large Ensembles, String Orchestra With Soloist, Viola(s)

Instrumentation:

Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Viola ( Solo )
  • 1 x String orchestra
Programme Note:
The second Ballade, especially commissioned by the Viola Study Society with a grant from the Ontario Arts Council, was composed in the summer of 1980 and played during the International Viola Conference in Toronto in June 1981 with Ralph Aldrich as soloist and an orchestra conducted by Uri Mayer. It is as complex as the first Ballade is simple and as chromatic as the other is diatonic, but, it is hoped, equally lyrical.
