Ask Alice, with Alice McVeigh

On Wagner string parts and Fred Sherry's Bach duets,
with classical music agony aunt ALICE McVEIGH

Ask Alice

? 'Hi Alice,

I play the viola in a semi-pro orchestra, and I'm fed-up with Wagner (we are essaying the first act of Die Walküre).

He has given the most extraordinarily finger-twisting section to the violas: even the violins get nothing like it!..
