Bela Bartok: Sonata For Solo Violin

Books | Violin

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Composer: Bela Bartok
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
This Sonata for Solo Violin was completed in March 1944 and was Bartok’s penultimate work. It was composed for Yehudi Menuhin, who gave the first performance in New York on 26th November 1944. At this time more than any other, Bartok was writing less complex, more minimal rhythms which served to highlight his glorious melodies.

Typically for Bartok, this is a satisfying if serious and solemn work, but one that will delight with its virtuosic elements and interesting melodic movements.

          Excellent piece, but be warned, it is VERY advanced, there is nothing intermediate about it (I am post grade 8)
