Work introduction

Towards a Brighter Hue for solo violin (2004) was commissioned for the ARD International Music Competition. Midori was so taken by this piece that she asked Staud to compose a work for violin and chamber orchestra, which she premiered at Lucerne Festival. In this work, Staud has clearly built on elements from Towards a Brighter Hue, but would not be Staud if he did not surprise us with an array of tonal delicacies as well.
