Der Schwanendreher (Hindemith) Fingering: Viola Solo

Der Schwanendreher (Hindemith) Fingering: Viola Solo

This seems to be the best video and I got some of the fingerings by watching his left hand position


Hindemith: Der Schwanendreher ∙ hr-Sinfonieorchester ∙ Antoine Tamestit ∙ Paavo J√§rvi
hr-Sinfonieorchester – Frankfurt Radio Symphony




I'm trying to do this piece for an audition, and it's a bear to figure out the fingering, and it's very difficult to get your head around any "melody" as it doesn't sound anything like a classical or romantic piece like Beethoven or Brahms so here is my solution:
