One of the featured pieces at Concerto Workshop this summer was Telemann’s Concerto for Two Violas in G Major. Less familiar than the Concerto in G Major for viola which is performed regularly, the Concerto for Two Violas is a gem of a work. The soloists and the orchestra all have interesting parts. Each movement is a joy for the audience to hear. The solo parts can stand alone as a duet. The transcription for cellos was arranged to give cellos a chance to enjoy the work as soloists. The transcription also allows for flexibility in soloists if two good violists are difficult to find in your area. The transcription of the Concerto for Two Violas is now available.
