Contilena for flute and viola
By David Alpher
Duration 5'30

"As the name suggests, catilena is all about singing, lyric lines.  It's a songlike dialogue, with contrasting tempi.  While melodies are harldy foreign to either instrument, the viola-in in the chamber literature and especially the symphonic literature- has hyad a surfeit of accompanimental, supporting figures.  This unthrilling role is kept to a bare minimum in Cantilena.  I tried to create a genuine duo, a give-and-take aural relationship between two beautiful instruments that reately have the whole stage to themselves."  --David Alpher
