Chamber ensemble Violin, piano - Advanced
Composed by Walter Damrosch. Chamber music. Sonata for violin and piano that bridges the gap between late Romantic and early contemporary styles. Late Romantic. Score and part. Duration 27 minutes. Wolfhead Music #WM510. Published by Wolfhead Music (WF.WM510).
Composed in 1899, the sonata --the composer's only work for violin and piano -- is representative of the music from America's Gilded Age. Written in a pastoral style very reminiscent of Brahms, the work prefigures the chromaticism of later European composers of the early twentieth century.
