Programme Note:
The Sonata, completed on February 16, 1980, was written for cellist Parry Karp and given its premiere on November 8 of that year. 1980 also saw the composition of Weisgarber’s String Quartet No. 6 written for the Pro Arte Quartet of Madison, Wisconsin of which Mr. Karp was a member.
Performers will note that both score and parts contain many accidentals that are conventionally unnecessary but which either the composer or the editor felt would be useful for clarification. The composer’s Note to Performers states: “The metronome marks appearing throughout the score should be regarded as approximations. Comfort and freedom of execution must always be present.” [Karen Suzanne Smithson, February 5, 2015.]


Premiere Information:
