Liebeslied for viola solo - Katie Yap, baroque viola
This piece was written in October 2015 and was premiered by Katie Yap in Melbourne in June 2019.
Liebeslied is a miniature for solo viola in homage to Kreisler’s salon pieces for violin and piano. In them Kreisler paints a whimsical, romantic and sentimental notion of love, so in tribute to that Liebeslied is like an ugly cousin to those works, trying to capture the all the things he left out about love because of course it’s not as simple as he portrays.

This work is broadly a life cycle in 4 parts that begins with the idea of something coming out of hibernation, and eventually fading into still life photographs.
