Review from 2013 http://symposium.music.org
"Memorial in Two Parts (1984) for violin and piano, offers brief glances at historical works favored by the composition’s two dedicatees. Monteverdi, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Gershwin intermingle in a stylistic menagerie that provides a sense of treasured, but fading, memory. Schumann’s Piano Quintet is the most identifiable quotation here, providing momentary points of cadential repose. But these moments are fleeting as Schwartz’s textures continually evaporate and reconstitute in new forms."
