Lenny Cavallaro: Raindrops Fantasia For Violin And Piano Op. 5

Books | Violin, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Broadbent and Dunn
Composer: Lenny Cavallaro
Format: Sheet Music | Score

A set of free variations in the early Romantic style, Raindrops Fantasia For Violin And Piano Op. 5, by Lenny Cavallaro, develops a simple three-note motif (E-D#-E) in both the minor and major modes. Each variation is quite different, with one taking the form of the Classical minuet and trio.

Like many of Cavallaro's works, this composition has been hailed by critics as 'a throwback to Schubert'. The piece audaciously adheres to 18th and 19th century forms, harmonic language and structure.

Cavallaro has been described as a 'cultural missionary' who hopes that his compositions will encourage other composers to return to their common heritage.
