for Violin and Orchestra

Tyshawn Sorey describes his piece For Marcos Balter for violin and orchestra as a "non-certo", a single-movement work that rejects the conventionally heroic and virtuosic role of the concerto soloist in favor of a more continuous, yet less dominant presence alongside the ensemble. A tribute to the Sorey's friend and colleague Marcos Balter, the US-based Brazilian composer, the 38-minute piece was commissioned jointly by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra with assistance from the ARCO Collaborative. For Marcos Balter received its world premiere from the Detroit Symphony and soloist Jennifer Koh in November 2020, with Xian Zhang conducting.

This full score is available for purchase as part of the Peters Contemporary Library and features extensive performance notes, with solo and orchestral parts available on hire.
