Douglas DaSilva says: I have gathered 3 of my solo violin compositions, all with themes of “love,” and put them together. None of the dedications are Romantic in nature; but each of the dedications represent some kind of love.The first, Ad-fa-stulku was composed for violinist Eva Ingolf. Ad-fa-stulku is an Icelandic stave (or hex) used to win the love of woman. Even in a land of mystery and trolls one cannot (and should not) avoid the power of love. Witchcraft may influence; but in the end, true love prevails.The second, Amor e Dissonancia was composed for my father Joao DaSilva and premiered by violinist Amanda Lo. Love for family can be the most complicated of all. Yet, somehow it mostly goes unquestioned. Amor e Dissonancia (Love & Dissonance) expresses this complicated and arguably most powerful kind of love.The third, eadlufu is dedicated to Rob Voisey & Christen Genga. I had the honor of performing this piece (arranged for violin & guitar) at their wedding with violinist Maya Bennardo. The prelude was composed after their wedding, as a gift for the newlyweds. This piece works well as an improvisational piece and could easily be adapted to any variety of instruments. .
