Solo viola part in Scordatura. At the end of this file there is also a viola part written at concert pitch for a more practical use. This second part is taken from Herman Ritter Orchestral Excerpts, Book 1 (Leipzig: Carl Merseburger, n.d.(ca.1920), Plate C M 616). NMA confirms that date is about 1802.
