There is a dearth of reparatory for solo viola and orchestra.  I think that my fevered mind came up with a good one.  I see no compelling reason why Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (Op. 43) could not be transcribed for solo viola and orchestra.  Of course, once that was done very little effort would be needed to adjust the scale for the needs of the cello player.

The orchestra sheet music has lapsed copywrite and is widely available.  The solo transcription could, I believe, be protected by copywrite to generate some fees for the author.  I can see ample demand on the various Pop’s festivals once covid restrictions are behind us.

@Irv -

This might help - most of it's in Alto Clef, even though it's a Cello solo with Piano.

Oops! 

Were you thinking of more than the Eighteenth Variation?

@Elcbk and others.  Would you listen to it if offered?  I would.  Perhaps not ten times, but once is certainly more than what is possible now.

Maybe I misunderstood? 

I would love to listen to it. 

I thought you were finding the prospect of transcribing it - as "fun"(?)
