Canapés

appetizers for unaccompanied violin

These “tasty snacks” grew out of a period of daily sketching. Any one of them or a grouping of several might be played as encores. These eight were chosen and arranged in this order from a group of 12 or 13 originally. They are dedicated to violinist Diane Monroe, who had given the premier of my revised Violin Sonata, and later also my Violin Concerto, “Canto di Ritorno”, which she recorded for Innova Records. She played the first performance of these at the Salon of Andrea Clearfield, in Philadelphia, 2007.
