Composer David Bird – 'Apocrypha' For Violin & Viola [WORLD PREMIERE]

New York-based violin and viola duo, andPlay, performing the world premiere performance of David Bird’s 'Apocrypha' for solo violin and viola

New York-based violin and viola duo, andPlay, performing the world premiere performance of American electroacoustic and mixed-media composer David Bird’s 'Apocrypha' for solo violin and viola.

"Apocrypha is loosely inspired by Stanislaw Lem's 1961 novel 'Solaris' ... Lem's book follows a team of scientists stationed on a distant planet covered by a vast and gelatinous ocean ..." David has told The Violin Channel.

"The novel depicts the way in which a planet is able to manipulate the emotions and memories of space travelers as they approach it, and I was interested in depicting the violin and viola as characters that slowly, and almost unknowingly, enter some kind of turbulent emotional orbit and then depart from it ...." he has said.

"Ultimately I’d invite any perspective or listening of the piece, but would be glad if an audience experienced some kind of transformation for (or in) themselves."

Recorded as part of andPlay's debut album 'playlist' - released in September of this year on the New Focus Recordings label.
