Detail

Description

Commissioned by Curtis Macomber

“The most striking was David Froom's Sonata for Violin Solo (2003), movements that segue between episodes of lacy elegance, lurching violence and wistful lyricism, until a furious, rhythmically unbounded, toccatalike finale.”  (Anthony Tomasinni, The New York Times)

"It’s obscenely difficult to write creative, interesting, and listenable pieces for solo instruments (I’ve tried!), but Froom has done a bang-up job here. Every violin teacher should have at least one student learn this every year."  (American Record Guide)
