Works on this Album:
Rhapsody No. 2 for solo violin (2020) 5'
for solo violin
commissioned by Michi Wancko
The premise was simple. Wiancko asked a handful of her favorite composers to write music for acoustic or electro-acoustic 4- or 5-string violin with the goal of creating “a world in which electronic and new classical music cozy up to each other without inhibition.” The result is an album of “bold, virtuosic, emotive, and deeply personal” pieces that add to the canon of solo violin repertoire.
