Video-on-Demand: The Orchestral Instruments: The ViolasKinderveranstaltung

KonserthusetPlayAufgenommen am Konserthuset Stockholm: Stora Salen, Stockholm, Schweden

Discover the viola! It's the bigger cousin of the violin, with a warm and soft sound. And it can play both funny – and scary – music!

The viola is also called bratsch – a loved one has many names. It is an instrument that often is heard in the middle of the orchestra’s sound: below the melody, but above the base. As the most delicious filling in a cake! 

This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together.

The series about the orchestral instruments is produced with the support of Konserthuset Stockholm's main sponsor SEB.
