Well, here is the final transcription of the Sonate, opus 35, in its new guise as a violin sonata.
I don't know if I should cut the recording into smaller chunks... maybe that might help downloading speeds. As it is, each file consists of 2 whole movements.
I really like how the Strad worked in Finale, and particularly how life-like HumanPlayback made it sound. Some of the double-stops I might have liked a bit more emphasis on the lower notes, but I can live with this.
The violn transcription might get its premiere this winter. I'm still discussing the possibility with a violinist. More news later, hopefully.
So without further ado, Violin sonata:
Part I (movements 1 and 2: Preludium and Scherzo)
Part II (movements 3 and 4: Nocturne and Tiento)
Part III (movements 5 and 6: Arioso and Ronde)
The entire thematic material is exposed in the very first movement (Preludium), and then developed throughout the subsequant 5 movements in alternations of fast and slow tempos. The final movement (Ronde) is a sort of rondo where the material (moods, rather) of the preceding parts are reiterated but in reverse order ( Arioso, Tiento, Nocturne, Scherzo, and finale the Preludium... with a tiny coda based on the Scherzo).
The entire sonata is, obviously, extremely cyclical, with every bit of material finding itself developed into "new" material for each part. Even the Scherzo, which is a pure "classical" scherzo form complete with Trio and all the requisite repeats of an "A theme" and a "B theme", basically utilizes only one motif from teh opening movement.
