STUCKY: Sonata for Violin & Piano

Composed for violinist Cho-Liang Lin, Steven Stuck’s Sonata for Violin & Piano adapts the traditional form with its study in contrasts for a contemporary idiom, creating a musical narrative that is classical in construction yet by turns playful, forceful and almost improvisatory.
