Programme Note:
These pieces are meant to be fun, interesting and slightly unusual study pieces for the novice violist. My philosophy as a composer is to bring together music of different genres, breaking down the walls that sometimes enclose "classical music", and encouraging classically-trained musicians to broaden their horizons. Thus I have included a tango, a bluegrass piece, a slightly avant-garde piece involving some extended techniques (though presented in a fun and friendly setting), and a more traditional "lament" using my own modern harmonic language, all using simple but distinctive melodies that demand emotional engagement from the player.
