Description: 2013. In 2008, Lois Martin, violist extraordinaire, asked me to write a piece for her. I completed the piece in 2010, and made minor revisions in 2013 and 2014. She premiered it in a recital in 2014 at the Tenri Cultural Institute.
The piece uses a freely atonal / extended tonal language, and incorporates classical / romantic era tropes and devices, in structure, phrasing and motivic material, but instead of the patient and poised or methodical development it thrashes through the ideas quickly and urgently, rushing through four movements in just 13 minutes.
