ViolaMania Videos

To start: a teaser-trailer... just some short -and unsteady, sorry! - snippets of the

And then - the complete Telemann viola concerto, in four separate movements -
these were put up on YouTube by the family of one student who had attended
and joined in... Madeline Prager gave us a fun first-cadenza solo in the first movement...

The third movement's cadenza was raffled off prior to beginning the concerto; the winning ticket belonged to ViolaMania co-coordinator Katrina Wreede, who was playing the 4th Viola part in the orchestra (she had arranged the orchestral quartet herself). For whatever reason we quickly decided to draw another ticket to get someone to join her on a double-cadenza, and that winning ticket belonged to Jeremy Cohen of Quartet San Francisco. So when the time came, we got a seriously jazzed up - 'short but sweet' - Andante cadenza duet performed by two former Turtle Island String Quartet violists.. check it out...
