Melia Watras, born in 1969, is an American violist and composer who works totally on the fringes of the classical world. She is a member of the string trio Frequency, in which she plays with violinist Michael Jinsoo Lim and cellist Sæunn Thorsteindóttir, and a Professor of Viola on the University of Washington. None of that is to say that Medtner’s music was as modern as that of Stravinsky or Prokofiev, and it wasn’t, but that was a problem, too. Audiences and critics of the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s kept ready for Medtner to develop a extra fashionable style in order to be in preserving with these composers, however he by no means did. He always stayed inside himself, thus his music wasn’t conventionally melodic sufficient to be popular or modern sufficient to be accepted as “contemporary,” but his music was really great, musically inventive and emotionally affecting.
