Fantasia : for solo viola / Elizabeth Younan.

Library shelf no. 787.3/YOU 2 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This viola solo is titled Fantasia due to the nature of its free and improvisatory construction. The manipulation of small musical cells and their sudden juxtapositions form the modus operandi of this work.

N.B. Small liberties in time to accurately reach double stops may be exercised.These passages are to be played as close to the speed indicated without compromising pitches or quality of tone. This struggle forms the aesthetic of the work.
An accent indicates a sharp attack. A tenuto indicates a push into the note, to be held for an infinitesimal moment longer than notated.
