Creation of this work was supported from public sources in the form of a scholarship from the Slovak Arts Council
In Front Of The Waves is the first part of a trilogy for solo viola and string orchestra that can be viewed as Viola Concerto. The third part of the trilogy is Behind the Waves.
In Front Of The Waves was composed in 2021 on the initiative of the Serbian viola virtuoso Sasha Mirković.
There are waves in front of us, high and opaque. There are waves between us, waves that we once overcame. And there are also waves between ourselves, between our deeds, thoughts and decisions. Getting through these waves can help to start a new epoch of life. Though in some of them many lives perish.
The complete performance material (score and parts) for In Front Of The Waves will be available for purchase / rent after the world premiere of the work in autumn 2022.
