Premiere: 14.03.2019
Hannah Levinson, viola

Hannah Levinson performs the Requiem for solo viola (world premiere) and Studi profondi for solo viola (US Premiere)
Requiem for solo viola, composed in 1982 and revised in 2006, is a dense and reiterative piece recalling the counterpoint of the “Grosse Fuge” by Beethoven. Four real and virtual lines are pressed together in the reduced space of the ambitus of the viola. A non-stop search of impossible simultaneities.
