ALBA FERNANDA TRIANA

Violoncello octet, 1995

Duration: fifteen minutes

In this single movement piece, the possibilities of the cello soloist are expanded through the use of eight violoncellos. The instrument is extended into various ensembles: duo, trio and up to the octet. This allows the cello’s sonority to be explored in highly complex textures. In addition, the special stage layout is designed to make sound spatialization an important parameter in the work.
