    'Five Sketches' was commissioned by Nicholas Logie and first performed by him on 31 May 1984 at the Wigmore Hall.

    Quoting Maconchy: "I have always had a particular affection for the viola with its dark tone-colour and its unlimited expressive range. I have tried in these pieces to explore that range and to make them well varied in rhythm and content. The note E which the work begins and ends serves as a sort of _point d 'appui_ all through.'
