Gyula Dávid Viola Concerto


Gyula Dávid (May 6, 1913 -- March 14, 1977) was a Hungarian violist and composer.
Dávid studied composition with Zoltán Kodály at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. He played viola with the Municipal Orchestra in Budapest from 1940 to 1943, and was a conductor at the National Theatre from 1945 to 1949.

Dávid's music can largely be divided into two periods: his early compositions were influenced by folk song, and those from his second period are more chromatic or 12-tone serial. One of the most famous compositions of his first period is his Viola Concerto (1950).

1. allegro
2. adagio ma non troppo 7.55
3. vivace 15.40
