Eduardo Morales-Caso - Le Rouge et le Noir for Viola and Harp. This fantasy for viola and harp is dedicated to my beloved and close friends Julia Malkova and Mickaele Granados. This work is based on the creation and combination of pedal textures and harmonics where the irregular stresses create an attractive metric movement, only possible on the harp, offering us an "attemporality" of the time on the space. The characteristic lyricism of the viola is established through big melodic lines ("molto espressivo") which explore the extended and seductive register of the instrument, leading it to the highest expression of its extremes. Le Rouge et le Noir has the power of a seductive aroma which creates this fascinating chamber combination, becoming an expansive work full of contrasts, always able to seduce.
