Savannah Music Festival LIVE 720 – Philip Dukes Salutes Michael Tree

Tuned a perfect fifth above the violin and an octave below the cello, the viola makes a unique and beautiful sound. In the spring of 2014, the esteemed British violist Philip Dukes created the idea for a concert celebrating the 80th birthday of the renowned Michael Tree. The performance featured a selection of works spanning three centuries and showcased compositions written for the viola, works by composers who were also violists.
