violin and piano (version of the sonata for viola and piano)


Written in 2000, the Sonata for piano and violin is a transcription of the sonata for viola and piano.
The piece which duration is 13 mn, is composed of one movement where we can distinguish three parts.
In the initial exposition, the piano presents a melodic element which will be the compositional ferment of all the work.
It is first developed as a melodic dialogue, and then in a second period exposed in a rhythmical way.
After the recapitulation, the violin, then the piano, express themselves in a musical writing near the spirit of a Cadenza.
At this moment, the Sonata gives the privilege to the special colors and tones of the soloists.
The Final leans on the rhythmical element presented during the exposition but in a tempo much more lively and brilliant.
It concludes the Sonata in an intense and luminous harmonic climate.
