To date, numerous contemporary Turkish composers have written concertos for solo viola, sonatas for viola and piano, and solo viola pieces. Solo Sonata for Viola, composed by Hatıra Ahmedli Cafer, is the first solo viola sonata written by a contemporary Turkish composer. This piece has been composed in a single-movement form. The composer wrote the piece in sonata form to signify the clashing of two opposing ideas and their continued struggle. Because the piece has been composed in a contemporary style, the composer used smaller versions of big themes and emphasized tetrachords. The Segah Makam, brought modal characteristics to the piece.
