Composer Melody McKiver

"It might appear that I'm by myself on stage performing, but actually there are countless hours of conversation with the composers. My role is to help so that everything that they have in mind, in terms of character and atmosphere, is efficiently delivered on the viola. It becomes a symbiosis that is very natural, and there's a lot of trust."
