Alcúdia for Viola (Cello) and Piano

Alcúdia für Viola (Violoncello) und Klavier (2002/03)

Lea ask me if I could compose her a piece of music for viola and piano for her viola diploma. In summer 2002 Doris and I went to Mallorca to visit the grand parents of Gabriel Estarella who lived in Palma de Mallorca and Alcúdia.

I. Formentor, Allegro. Formentor is an impressive mountain range ending with the Cap de Formentor, 384 m above sea level.

II. Piecis sobre suelo del mar, Allegretto. As it was very hot and the water warm we snorkeled a lot in the sea. We saw lots of small fish but no big ones. One photo I made shows two fish above the seabed.

III. Piecis, Allegro vivace. Lots of small fish.

IV. Lento.

V. Agaves, Allegro. The experts who followed the diploma concert wondered what the agaves have to do with the music. Anyway one doesn't need any agave to listen to the music.

Scores and sheet music can be obtained. Ask me.
