    "Violin Sonata In C#" (Excerpt)

    Y'all,

    Here is an excerpt from the first movement of my "Violin Sonata In C#".

    I produced different versions of this work. In this case, the piano is Garritan and the violin is EWQL.

    Regards,

    Nice treatment of the violin!

    Except that the trills sound a bit unnatural. This appears to be a general problem, no matter if in GPO or in EW.

    Wow Larry! This teaches me to be away for so long. I've missed your compositions!

    I don't think I have ever heard you using a piano + (solo instrument) before in your compositions. This was great.

    I loved your use of rubato and tempo accel/rit. throughout. It really makes the piece come alive.

    Also loved how you start with the violin arpeggios and then mimic them in the piano about halfway thru while the violin switches to the sustain part. Very effective. A really nice formed piece and structure and beautiful to listen to.

    I doubt if anyone would be able to distinguish this piece from one of the compositions from a great master if it were played with a real violin.

    Excellent,
    Cass
