Sheet Music: Performance Parts
Elvira : for 4 violins, double bass and piano / Kate Reid.
by Kate Reid (2013)
I wrote this work in celebration of my first grandchild when she
was five years old. In each of the three sections I have tried to
capture a specific mood or space.
In the first section I imagined her painting with all the freedom and lack of inhibition of a young child. The second section explores a different mood altogether such as when a child suddenly and for no apparent reason just "zones out" into a daydream world. In the final section I have tried to bring back the child's world of fun and frivolity. This, I find, is best observed at bath time, especially (as in her case) if there is a younger sibling involved.
