Solo for Viola d’Amore by Georg Friedrich Haas performed live by Garth Knox in Graz.

This is the second half of the piece. In the final section, the sympathetic strings are plucked and bowed directly, an unusual and striking effect. These are the second set of strings on the viola d’amore, usually not played directly, only there to resonate passively. In this piece they are amplified, and controlled by a volume pedal.
