Violin Sonata No. 3

My Violin Sonata No. 3 was written in 2017. It was performed at Eastman’s Washington Square Concert Series in October of that year, featuring Soo Yeon Kim, a terrific Eastman DMA student, on violin, and me on piano.

The piece is in three movements. The first piece mixes major and minor—from the very first measures—giving it a sort of bittersweet quality. The second movement is a theme and variations, with rather a dark, somber mood. The third movement is more lively.

  1. I. Allegro moderato 4:36
  2. II. Theme and Variations 5:35
  3. III. Allegro 3:31
