Abstract/Description: This treatise presents selected viola works by Alfred Uhl (1909-1992). Three chamber works that feature the viola are discussed. Trio für Violine, Viola, and Gitarre, Kleine Konzert für Viola, Klarinette & Klavier, Vier Lieder aus der Heiteren Kantate "Wer Einsam ist, der hat es gut" für Sopran, Viola, & Klavier are examined in terms of their history, general form, and salient stylistic elements. Dreiβig Etüden and Zwanzig Etüden für Viola are approached from a pedagogical viewpoint. Each etude is analyzed for musical and technical challenges that a viola student may experience while preparing it. Musical elements, like tempo, character, and rhythm, are explored. Technical elements, like intonation and bow control, are discussed. Quantification and analysis of musical data provide an alternate pedagogical view of the etudes. The purpose of the treatise is to inspire others to perform and record the viola works of Alfred Uhl, and to use the etudes in teaching studios.
