My son is using this for grade 8 viola. Very useful piece for developing technique and string crossing. Not expensive for the amount of music you get, makes a change!!
Best viola edition of these works so far. A few too many suggestions by Rowland Jones but generally kept quite clean. Maxim Rysanov used this edition for his recent recording. One problem: extremely strong binding along the spine. It will last you a lifetime but the darn thing will not stay open on the stand!! Very frustrating!!!

The definitive edition for Viola players. Wish he'd do a new version of the Sonatas & Partitas. Includes scordatura version of 5th Suite (with A string tuned down to a G) and 5 string version of 6th Suite, as well as 'normal', adapted 4 string versions.
