A virtuosic showpiece in three parts for viola, exploiting all the capabilities of the instrument for lyric playing, the projection of multiple lines and speeds, multiple-stops and harmonics. The first movement is a multi-voiced chaconne, the second is an interlude with formal options up to the performer, and the third is a motoric finale.
