Michael Finnissy
Violin Sonata
Composer:  Michael Finnissy
Part/Version: Score and part
Forces or Category: Violin & piano
Details: This publication of Finnissy's Violin Sonata coincided with the release of the 'mode, New York' record label's Finnissy CD in December 2008, performed by renowned ensemble The Fidelio Trio. The work explores both conventional Sonata forms and the flexibility of performance practice for which Finnissy is renowned. The piece was designed to interact with some of the materials of the first movement of the String Quintet in F major Op.88 by Brahms, a paradigm of late nineteenth-century Apollonian design following (classical/abstract/formalist) "sonata principle".
The dialectical discourse on Brahms also drifts off-course three times to embrace the Irish folk-song "O! Thou hapless soldier", the tenth of Beethoven's set of 20 Irische Lieder WoO 153.
