Space exploration -for string quartet,

commissioned and recorded by the Australian String Quartet

An encore like this gives an opportunity to really explore an atmosphere or a space rather than a fully-fledged musical narrative. This short work uses a limited harmonic range and delicate fleeting textures to very actively stay in the one spot, like a hyperactive nocturne.

Liebeslied for viola solo - Katie Yap, baroque viola

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.
