Product details

The Australian violist Patricia Pollett asked me to write her a solo piece when we were both in residence at the Mount Buller Summer School for Strings in 1990. Four years later I completed Enyato II, dedicated
to Patricia, who gave the first performance at a Perihelion concert in Brisbane in 1994. I later replaced the title Enyato II (enyato means simply 'contrast') with the more evocative Prelude and White Cockatoo
Spirit Dance. Originally for viola, I later made transposed versions for violin and cello.

The two movements are vastly dissimilar: the Prelude an expressive adagio; the Dance, an energetic maninya (dance/chant), whose characteristic shapes and patterns have been distilled from the natural environment. This movement may be performed on its own as White Cockatoo Spirit Dance.
