Published in 2014, this sonata in four movements (slow-fast-slow-fast) is reminiscent of works from the Baroque period. Cavallaro has adhered not only to the harmonic and structural idioms of the time but also to many of the other 'unwritten' conventions of the style.

The work invites a great deal of freedom and even leaves room for some improvisation. In the third movement the Violin enters on a long, held note - this pattern recurs throughout and in some ways appears to echo similar long notes in Bach's B Minor Sonata. The last movement is a set of variations, though neither chaconne nor passacaglia - these are melodic, in the Italian manner, and clearly sound less baroque.

The thematic material derives from the opening of Papageno's aria Ein Mädchen Oder Weibchen from Mozart's Magic Flute but transposed from F Major to D Minor. This sonata was premiered at the Lincoln Center by Bobby Portney and has subsequently been recorded by Sarah Darling.
