NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Composer Michael Oesterle – ‘Stand Alone’ for Solo Violin [PREMIERE]

Austrian violinist Johanna Pichlmair performing German-born Canadian composer Michael Oesterle’s new-premiered 'Stand Alone' for Solo Violin

Austrian violinist Johanna Pichlmair performing German-born Canadian composer Michael Oesterle’s new-premiered Stand Alone for Solo Violin.

"Stand Alone is a monologue of brooding nostalgia with flashes of virtuosic impudence ..." Michael has told The Violin Channel.

"In the piece, the violin’s open strings resonate with a harmonic image that acts as a focal point around which the musical ideas pivot and play ... there are hints of the Baroque, Folkloric, and Romantic traditions, snippets of diverse expressions which are all about my love for the instrument ..." he has said.

"I had a close look at Westhoff, Guillemain and Bjarne Brustad solo violin scores, and I listened to recordings of my favourite violinist playing Bach ... all of this set a context for my new piece, and writing the notes on the page wasn't difficult - it all came together very quickly."

Commissioned by the 2019 Montreal International Violin Competition and recorded live on the 1st of June, 2019 - at Bourgie Hall, in Montreal, Canada.
