Colgrass Variations for Four Drums and Viola

As you can see, I'm quite fond of Michael Colgrass' music. Perhaps it is because I grew up listening to my father practice this wonderful Colgrass piece. He recorded it with Everett (Vic) Firth in 1968 for RCA, but I don't have a copy of the LP set. Perhaps someone will consider re-releasing that set (LSC 6184) on CD one of these days.

The violist in this performance, Andre Cameron, was one of his students--more than 30 years ago!
