Specializing in Music for Viola
Music of Michael Kimber
Photo by J. F. W. Kimber
As a violist who also composes, Im naturally inclined to write music that
I myself will enjoy playing. Sounding contemporary is rarely my intent;
my style has depended on the kind of music Im writing. Ive found much
inspiration in writing music evocative of other times and places, and every
time and place suggests its own unique style.
