Rebecca Clarke wrote her monumental viola sonata in 1918/19, and it has since become a mainstay of the viola repertoire. The sonata is full of chromatic invention and utilises many viola effects such as pizzicatos and harmonics. While showing influences of Vaughan-Williams and Debussy, the piece is highly original and expertly written.


These piano accompaniment tracks help make practising more effective and enjoyable! They are recorded by a professional accompanist and can help you keep in tune and in time, as you listen to the piano part for this work. Many customers have found them a cost-effective alternative to hiring a pianist in the early stages of learning a new piece, whether that be for an exam, recital, audition or simply for fun!
