And now, it might be asked, should we pity the viola? It is after all consigned to an unglamorous middle range, and is ever on the receiving end of all that merciless skewering (if you don’t know what I mean, type “viola jokes” into Google, or ask anyone who has played in an orchestra).
Reza Vali: Toward That Endless Plain has garnered critical acclaim.

"Rose led the large orchestra in a reading of the score that honored the sparkling, richly melodic vein in Tippett’s writing, the impressionistic melding of ancient and modern sound worlds, and the admirable fluidity of his craft. The ritual dance numbers took on a life of their own, and the buoyant singing of the chorus helped drive many of the evening’s most vibrant moments."
“... Rose said, reflecting on both the long path of getting 'The Midsummer Marriage' performed and the possibility of similar ventures in the future '... I have ideas and hopes. But mostly I’m focused on how to bring down the house with this thing.'”
