sub-principal viola player
drugi koncertmistrz w sekcji altówek


Explanation:

Principal violin, viola, etc. is the first player (concertmaster) in the first violins section. Sub-principal should be the the one sitting next to the concertmaster.

ccccccccccccccc
The first violins are led by the concertmaster (leader in the UK); each of the other string sections also has a principal player (principal second violin, principal viola, principal cello and principal bass) who play the orchestral solos for the section, lead entrances and, in some cases, determine the bowings for the section (the concertmaster/leader may set the bowings for all strings, or just for the upper strings). The principal string players sit at the front of their section, closest to the conductor and on the row of performers which is closest to the audience.

Koncertmistrz – w orkiestrze symfonicznej zazwyczaj pierwszy instrumentalista w danej sekcji instrumentów smyczkowych (a więc w sekcjach: pierwszych skrzypiec, drugich skrzypiec, altówek, wiolonczeli, kontrabasów), czasami także w sekcjach instrumentów dętych drewnianych i blaszanych (osobno). Najczęściej pod pojęciem koncertmistrza rozumie się pierwszego skrzypka pierwszych skrzypiec.
