Cue of the Week: “Goodbye”

1 Comment

A teary-eyed moment late in the film Emerald, Texas. Here I chose to give the cue’s main melody to the viola rather than the usual suspects, the violin or cello. The viola has a more raw and less polished sound than its more celebrated siblings, and I felt that a touch of raw longing was just what the scene needed.

    Hi Michael,

    I agree, the viola really made the difference between a “sentimental” piece and
    the moving one you created.
