Program Notes:
“Concerto for Viola and Piano”
(Equinox – A Seeker’s Journey)

 In its original form the “Concerto for Viola and Orchestra showcases the virtuosity and soulfulness of the viola as it intones over a mysterious orchestral background. In this new version for viola and piano, the piano assumes the entire role of the orchestra making it an equal partner in the artistic expression. Each instrument plays a contrasting role of vital importance.

The voice of the viola as protagonist portrays an individual who is learning to live with his or her own demons of fear and self-doubt. The texture of the piano suggests nature’s unpredictability as it gently and, sometimes, violently propels us through our lives. Midway through the piece, the solo viola cadenza recounts a journey of deep self-exploration and redemption that can only be gained by acceptance of one's truest identity. The piano enters again luring the viola into a much more complete embrace of reality. As the viola submits to the profound beauty of nature, the piano embodies a sublime tapestry where the viola moves freely between darkness and light.

Originally commissioned by the Burbank Philharmonic under the direction of Steve Kerstein, the “Concerto for Viola and Orchestra” was premiered by Karen Elaine in 1996.  This work is scheduled to be performed by Victor de Almeida with James Domine conducting the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra on Sat. May 24, 2014 at Scherr Forum Theatre in Thousand Oaks, 7:30 PM.
