    Violin Sonata III. Tarantella - Allegro con fuoco

    After I presented to you the first movements of my new violin sonata in the recent weeks I'd like to share with you now the 3rd movement which I just completed - a furious 6/8 Allegro on a theme which originally was to be used for the Coda of the first movment:


    In particular I am very happy about the development which makes a lot use of counterpoint.

    I hope you'll like it

    If interested, you can find two examples of (somewhat modern) tarantella from southern Italy here and here (click on the track named "Miezzo a Festa").

    Mac Pro Quad Core, 23" Apple Cinema, Logic Pro 8.x + VSL PRO Edition, some of the VI's, GPO, Ivory, Edirol UA-25 audio card, Event TR6 monitors, 1 girlfriend (Ines).

    Hi Gerd;
    Yes, I enjoyed it too! A little past the midway point, it reminds me of part of Liszt "Totentanz". I particularly enjoyed the last few measures of the Finale.
    A lot of work on this project!
    Thank you for sharing!

    Best regards,
    sd cisco
