For some time, I have had the desire to write for multiple violins. This idea came to me one day during a conversation I had with violinist Mark Fewer – at that time we were musing about a project for violin and choir. While we were talking I found myself thinking about a choir of violins. Conversations, (and life), being what they are, the violin and choir piece didn’t come about at that time. But that aural image of nine violins stayed with me. The piece is dedicated to Toronto painter Nancy Kembry.
