Viola (2000) VHS NTSC, color, 10 min

Genre: Experimental

Music by Bernadette Speach; Viola Solo by Rozanna; Piano by Anthony de Mare; Video filming and imagery by Anney Bonney Dedicated to the memory of my mother, Viola Catherine Bellardini Speach This work was written while reflecting upon my mother's relationship to my musical life. This work is my way of thanking her for giving me life and always being supportive of my musical life. "Viola, opens with just one bowed, soulful viola note over and over, and eventually climaxes the same way, insisting on that note against the piano's chordal protestations. For all its austerity, the work bursts the bonds of postminimalism to evoke a thoughtful, introverted romanticism." -- "American Composer: Bernadette Speach" by Kyle Gann, Chamber Music Magazine Video sale price: $40 individual /$85 institutional
