Concerto for Two Violas (Telemann)

Concerto for Two Violas (Telemann)

The Concerto for 2 violas in G major, TWV 52:G3, is a work by Georg Philipp Telemann. Telemann was famous for writing concertos for various instruments and at the time the viola was not a popular instrument for a concerto because it was considered an English instrument, thus unfashionable. However, Telemann was a viola player himself, and wrote for the instrument. One of his most famous concertos was viola in G major TWV 51:G9.

This concerto has four movements:

  1. Lent

  2. Gai

  3. Large

  4. Vif

A usual performance lasts about 6 minutes.
