Score and part included.
A piece can begin with a commission, or it can begin with a little sunlight on an early morning. My Viola Sonata began as a generic melodic sketch on which I scribbled “Viola Sonata?” as a note to self. The next day I met pianist Shannon Loehrke at a recital and she asked for just such a piece. How could one not proceed? The work is dedicated to Shannon and her duo partner Coca Bochonko.
