Sinfonia Concertante für Violine Solo und Streichorchester
III. Echo Gigue (and Cadenza)
IV. Ground (in memoriam Lee Hoiby)
V. Estampie da capo
Sinfonia Concertante (2011) for solo violin and string orchestra is dedicated to Walter Simmons and Ronnie Halperin. The five movements of the work draw primarily upon stylistic elements of Medieval and Renaissance music, though viewed within a contemporary context. The title "Sinfonia" is used in one of its 17th century senses: a small collection of modest instrumental movements.
