We received over 130 entries for the Violet Commission Contest, a partnership between Violet and Noteflight. Contestants created music for a specific ensemble while filling a repertoire void for a unique combination of instruments: clarinet and viola.
Choosing the winner was extremely difficult as there were lots of quality pieces. Because there were so many amazing entries, Violet is adding several to their current list of performance repertoire. Check them out below!
Tranquil Awakening, by Thomas Johansson (Winner!)
Three Conversations for Clarinet and Viola (Op. 21), by Johnum Palado
Dreams I Dream for Clarinet and Viola, by E.V. Martinez
