What do three violists do after their third beer? Why naturally, play the Sydeman. Well, best played before the beer, as it is quite a demanding work. With the exception of a long ostinato in violas one and three (hooray, viola two gets the tune), the parts are quite independent and challenging. The work has a somewhat motoristic quality with lyric and intense interludes in-between. Accurate playing of the dynamics is extremely important to shape the piece properly. This piece attempts to fill a semi-void and is fun to play.
