Sonata for Violin and Piano in A minor (2003)

Sonata for Violin and Piano in A minor (2003)


Started in 2003 and revised in the years to follow, the Sonata for Violin and Piano in A minor is a clear example of Beethoven's significant influence in my compositional development. An introduction precedes the assertive main theme which is very present throughout the entire first movement. A lyrical and warm melody in Db Major distinguishes the slow movement from the ones surrounding it, a melody permanently interchanged between the two instruments. The attacca leading to the final movement gives the piano a chance to develop a counterpoint-like tonal transition from Db Major to a question mark on the dominant of A minor which consolidates the return to the home key. The third movement consists of a lively theme played by the violin, taken over by the piano in the development fugue and reappearing in the Coda of this ever-spinning Rondo.
Do you have any thoughts on this piece? I would love to hear them!
