Ya Layl (2021) – 4′

For Viola Alone

 

 

 

Performance Notes

Ya Layl | یا لیل derives its material from my string quartet Orientalism (2020, rev. 2021). It is based on the main theme which is passed around between the first violin and the viola. Ya Layl | یا لیل gave me the opportunity to explore this music in a solo context.

A recording of Ya Layl | یا لیل will be available after its performance on May 1, 2022 by August DuBeau .
