Music for Viola and Piano

Composition Date: 2006
Genre: Strings (bowed), + Keyboard, Viola


Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Piano
  • 1 x Viola
Programme Note:
In this work, the first movement uses two Basque melodies (one of which is a
Basque lullaby whose text contains only Basque nonsense words) for the first group and a
"Bulgarianized" version of a Hungarian folk melody for the second in this short sonata
form. The second movement is an arrangement of a 14th century melody by Guillaume
de Machault, and the last owes something to Scandinavian folk music (the obscure title
refers to a favorite Finnish dill-infused salad dressing that I like to make on occasion). It
is dedicated to Rudolf Haken, Rachel Jensen, and my counterpoint teacher, Jack Melby.
