Sheet Music: Score & Part(s)
Elegy : for viola and piano / Colin Spiers.
by Colin Spiers (1989)
This piece is an intense essay in contrasts. On the one hand its opening is very dark and even obsessive in character (symbolised by the opening key of A flat minor), while on the other this is balanced by sections that are very delicate and ethereal (symbolised by the shift to C sharp major). Following a powerful climax, the music winds down to silence in a coda dominated by measured tremolo harmonics on the viola.
