All That Glitters
for viola and piano
duration: c. 21' 30"
In an exploration of facade, temptation, and perspective, the violist plays the role of a
femme fatale, (n. an attractive and seductive woman, especially one who will ultimately
bring disaster to a man who becomes involved with her), while the pianist acts as the victim
of her schemes, until, in the final movement, it is revealed that the temptress is the true victim.
commissioned by violist Erin Pitts
