Pathétique means to move someone emotionally - to evoke sadness, to evoke pity. Pathétique was composed by Tito Abeleda for string orchestra and string sextet. Tito wrote this original poignant piece as a means to catharsis for processing sadness, reflection, and deep contemplation. Pathétique begins with an expressive violin solo, which sets the melodic motif and tone for the entire piece. Pathétique slowly builds, adding each string part as its own contrapuntal layer, which creates ever-growing, rich, lush harmonies that seeks to climb to the pinnacle of musical climax, resonating the fullness of emotional release. Pathétique (for String Sextet) conveys its own intimate yet powerful sense of deep emotionality. (Due to audio length, MP3 recording is an excerpt). Please watch video for full score.
