viola piece (2003)

for: viola

"I have been thinking a lot about the piece that you had played here in Zürich. It's taking me some time to digest it, and it seems that there is something new in there which I need to grow with in order to be able to hear it without the background noise in my head. One thing that was clear is that the entire piece is now. There are things that come one after the other, but in the end all is always now." email from Craig Shepard, 2nd April 2003
