Ed’s birthday is today, and, as every year of the past 29 years that we’ve been together, I compose a viola/piano duet for him on his birthday. He plays viola, I play piano. Each one of these duets is called an Evocation. I’ve shared some of these Evocations before on this blog (as in here and here and here and here and here and here and here). Today I share Evocation XXIX. The four pages of the piano/viola score and a computer rendition of the music. As ever, the computer sounds, well, like a machine, but until Ed and I hire professionals to play the Evocations in a recording studio (donations welcome), this is what I can do for you here.
Evocation XXIX took on a gothic flair – apparently I’m still in musicabre mode.
