Beyond Hoffmeister is a lecture that aims to expand violist’s Classical era repertoire. It will explore six viola concerto movements from middle to late eighteenth century Germany. Each concerto has a modern publication but does not have a widely available recording. The six movements, selected from eight studied concertos, were chosen for their musical quality, idiomatic viola writing, and pedagogical value. For each movement the lecture will give background on the composer, the piece as a whole, and the specific movement, followed by playing a recorded segment of the piece as recorded by Isaacson.
