Fantasia : for viola : viola solo
by Elizabeth Younan (2019)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
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.
Duration: 4 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Jessica Bodner and Rebecca Epperson
Commission note: Composed for the 2019 Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival
- In the form/style of: Fantasias
