NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Composer Clarice Assad – ‘Metamorfose’ for Viola & Piano [PREMIERE]

VC Young Artist Matthew Lipman and pianist Henry Kramer performing the world premiere performance of composer Clarice Assad’s 'Metamorfose' for Viola and Piano

Violist, VC Young Artist Matthew Lipman and pianist Henry Kramer performing the world premiere performance of Brazilian-American composer Clarice Assad’s Metamorfose for Viola and Piano.

“Matthew Lipman, the amazing violist who commissioned and recorded the piece, asked if the music could be composed in the memory of his mother ...  I didn’t know Matthew or his mother, and so at first, I felt that it was so much responsibility … but at the same time, the moment I met him, it felt as if we had known each other for a long time - and that was all I needed to feel more comfortable with the idea ..." Clarice has told The Violin Channel.

"We talked so much about their relationship ... how difficult the grieving process was - so the piece became this metaphor between his process of liberation from the anguish and pain into acceptance and his moving on as a this new person - without her ..." she has said.

"I began thinking about this for a long time, and at some point, the idea of the metamorphosis of a butterfly came into my mind, as a metaphor, and how this incredible natural phenomenon, might relate to the difficult, though inevitable art of letting go.”
