UC Davis Alumnus Richard Chowenhill: crush for Amplified 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.
