Solo Works

Solo Works by Brett Vachon

Two Objects is a suite for Solo Viola without any accompaniment.

In this suite I wanted to explore the musical possibilities of an unaccompanied stringed instrument. I find the timbre of the viola causes it to be 'buried' somewhat when paired with the piano, so the instrument doesn't get to shine as well.

The Two Objects are Soleil and Boîte. This short suite is dedicated to Emma Vachon-Tweney.

Listen to an excerpt of Soleil, the first work in the suite.  The performance is by Emma Vachon-Tweney.
