    Violin Sonato - intro (Strad)

    Here is the introduction to a sonata I started working on today for violin and piano, while playing with the Garritan Stradivari Solo Violin. I may possibly make it into a concerto by later orchestrating the piano part. It's quite the little noisy fireball of a piece.

    Violin Sonata

    I'd appreciate any feedback.

    Great sound, finish this piece man, sounds incredible.
    Maybe the sound of the violin and the piano are little different, maybe different rooms...but sounds great.

    Nice piano sound too...library of that piano??

    Dynamite in a blast furnace, Jamie! Can't wait to hear where this goes...

    And while admitting a prejudice for the instrument, that's some whipping good fun of a piano part... think I'd stick with it.

    Edit (Afterthought):
    Maybe a double concerto, piano and violin? I could hear that piano part as texturally thematic.

    My best,

    Cant wait to hear the rest. That is a very arresting opening. Love the spiky energy.

    ". . . a prime example of Kowalski's sonata writing comes from his early "Garritan" period (just after the turn of the 21st century). This particular work, known as the "Fireball Sonata," has delighted performers and audiences alike for many decades, and shows no sign of exiting the repertoire in the foreseeable future. . . ."

    Great start. Like the equality between the instruments. Waiting to hear a finished sonata.

    Thanks, Julian. I think the violin may need a tiny bit more reverb on it, but I usually don't sweat that sort of thing until I'm closer to finishing a piece. The piano is the GPO Steinway, of course!

    Thanks David. I am considering double concerto as well. Maybe I'll look around to see what upcoming composition contests might be looking for before deciding. The other problem with taking out the piano is those rushing lines in the very low extreme of register. Might be hard to make that speak in basses, contrabassoons, et al.

    Thanks for the comment. I love the idea of "spiky energy!"
