Kurt Rohde’s Farewell Tour, PART 1
Recital Hall, Ann E. Pitzer Center

Kurt Rohde chuckling in front of a brick wall.

Kurt Rohde, viola, with Jared Redmond, piano

A short program featuring world premieres of works for viola, and viola and piano—

Martha Horst: Hammer for Viola and Piano

Jared Redmond: Tongues of Angels for Viola and Piano

Mark Winges: The Tapestry of Unknown Islands for Viola and Piano          

Ramteen Sazagari: Counterpane for Amplified Solo Viola
—Sazegari is an alumnus of UC Davis’s music department.

Laura Elise Schwendinger: Three Movements for Solo Viola

A multiyear commissioning project that is modeled after Cher’s decades-long farewell tours, Kurt Rohde’s Farewell Tour—Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6—commissions new works by the most gifted composers who, Rohde feels, are underrepresented and deserve a wider audience, while also broadening the repertoire for viola. His project’s anticipated year of completion is 2028, at which time he will retire from playing in performance and donate his instrument to some talented whippersnapper who wants to play viola.
