 Discuss the theory of organic structure as an element of form in music, esp as it relates to single-movement sonata form.  Describe the relationship of the return of the second theme in the recap of the form to its appearance in the exposition in your discussion.

The Art of Sound at A Cavallo Violins

February 7, 2011 17:30

 I'll be performing at an amazing event at A Cavallo violins in Omaha, NE on March 19 and April 9th. There will be well over 100 modern violins on exhibition for the Art of Sound event, held annually at this great violin shop. There will be a night of solo playing on the 19th followed by a string quartet of modern instruments on April 9th.  Excited to play so many great modern instruments, and what a great gift to local community to have so many makers represented under one roof!   :)
