Karlo MARGETIĆ: On an imaginary folk song (for solo violin)

From Music Alive, 8:00 pm on 7 October 2018

Karlo Margetić’s atmospheric piece is a reflexive – and reflective – view of folk style.

Stark, accented tones that focus on exploring the sonic capabilities of the violin are paired with breakneck passages in Karlo Margetić’s 'On an imaginary folk song' for solo violin.

The ingredients of folk music are taken apart, then merged sequentially around bass notes.

This work was commissioned for the 2017 Michael Hill International Violin Competition which was won by Ioana Cristina Goicea.
