KABAH: "An exotically evocative piece, describing the atmosphere and spirit of the place with eerie harmonics, long-held notes and often sparse harmonies conveying a sense of vast emptiness and antiquity." -The Washington Post 

DARK WINTER WALTZ  Vla  6'  Peter Ware
Exploiting the lyrical aspect of the viola, this piece captures the spacious and desolate qualities of the north.  The melody unfolds with soulfully, interjected with double stops over a pizzicato drone.  In an expanded ternary form, the middle section explores the lower register in a slow, dark waltz.  2 p.  AE292  $3.98

ELEGY  Vln  3'  Peter Ware
Inspired by the Oka Indian uprising in Quebec, this solo intonation with its plaintive sigh motives and mournful tremolos, moves beyond the specific event as a meditation  for all time.  Fluid and unhurried, it weaves pure lyric poetry.  1 p.  AE950  $2.98

KLUANE  Violin/Cello  22'  Peter Ware  
Free Cello MP3 Excerpt of Kluane 2nd Movement

This four movement suite is a virtuoso showpiece, featuring idiomatic string writing with extensive use of double stops, melodies accompanied by pizzicato, tremolos and harmonics.  Opening is the evocative and highly dramatic North Face, followed by the jazz inspired Blues with syncopated rhythms, hemiola and blue notes.  Dark Winter Waltz then opens solemnly, progressing to a slow waltz in the cello's lower register.  Wind Dance, marked prestissimo, is a furious, fluttering tremolo study.  12 p. violin AE1522 ; Cello AE1581 $13.98
