for solo viola
This piece is conceived as an étude on hidden polyphony, partially inspired by the works for solo strings by J. S. Bach. It also draws on an extensive exploration of natural harmonics.
This work won unanimously the 1st Prize at the “Viola’s 2014” Composition Contest, organized by the Association Franco‐Européenne de l’Alto. Its first performance was given by Grégoire Simon at the CRR of Paris, France on 5 April 2014.
