Violas of the world, unite! (You have nothing to lose…)main
Moscow has announced a contemporary music festival for violas next month.
Taking its title from Morton Feldman’s work, The Viola in My Life, and organised by violist Sergey Poltava, the festival will match Russian works with pieces by Lutoslawski, Gavin Bryars, Catherine Reed, Steven Snowden, George Pelecis and Fred Rzewski. Most will receive their Russian premiere. Revolutionary stuff.
