Abstract:
At 5:00 p.m. on the 6th of April, 2013, a recital was presented featuring works with a wide range of sonatas in seventeenth century to twentieth century within the violin repertoire. Presented in the room 101 recital hall of the University of Florida Music Building, the recital opened with a classic time period sonata composed by Ludwig van Beethoven. This sonata is Beethoven’s first violin sonata and it was composed in tradition sonata form. This work followed Eugene Ysaye’s sonata Ballade. Ysaye composed a total of six sonatas for solo violin. This sonata is his third sonata and only one movement sonata. The second half of the performance was opened with sonata No.3 Largo and Allegro assai by J.S. Bach. Bach composed a set of six works for solo violin. It consisted of three sonatas and three partitas. Sonata No.3 is one of his three sonatas. Largo and Allegro assai are a good set because it contrasts with slow and fast movements. This set was completed by 1720 but it was published in 1802 by Nicolaus Simrock. This work was followed by Edward Elgar’s sonata op.82. This is his only violin sonata. This is a twentieth century sonata but he followed traditional style of sonata, which means it has three movements fast – slow – fast structure. This recital was closed with Aram Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance. It is a famous orchestra piece by Ballet Gayane. This piece was transcripted by Ysaha Heifets for solo violin. This recital performance presented the Baroque era to the twentieth century which was spanning nearly three hundred years. The performance encompassed approximately seventy minutes of music.

PROGRAM NOTES Ludwig van Beethoven (Dec ember 17, 1770 March 26, 1827): Beethoven composed a total of 10 violin sonatas. He wrote the first three as a set (op.12) in 1797 98 ; they are in sonata form for the piano and violin. He was influenced by both Mozart an d Haydn in his early works Beethoven followed their composition al style and clearly does not submit to the piano; t he violin part is less complex than the piano. The first movement opens with unison and quickly changes to a songful tune which is played first by violin then the piano responds. In the m iddle of this mov ement he changes key to F major, start ing in a quiet dynamic giving the audience more tension This F major section is not long and then the music returns to the main theme again. The second movement is a theme plus set of four variations in F major except for variation III which is in A minor. T he first variation is entirely piano solo with violin accompaniment. The third movement is a Rondo. This movement is very exciting and portrays a happy mood the entire time. The middle part of this movement changes to F major, as in the first move ment, and the piano and the violin exchange roles. Eugene Ysaye (July 16, 1858 May 12, 1931): Ys aye was a Belgian composer as well as a virtuoso violinist. He had an enormous impact on the violin repertoire of the early 20 th century. He got the idea of wr iting 6 solo violin sonatas after hearing Joseph Szigeti perform J.S. Bach s sonata for solo violin in G minor. Ysaye said, I have played everything from Bach to Debussy, for real art should be international H is six violin sonatas for violin solo were w ritten in 1924 and are a mixture of Bach s counterpoint and Paganini s virtuosity. He used 20 th century characteristics in his compositional style such as whole tone scales, dissonances, and quarter tones. Each sonata is dedicated to a contemporary violin ist and the Ballade was written for the Romanian violinist and composer George Enescu, who later taught Yehudi Menuhin. The Ballad e is the only one movement composition of his six violin sonat as. It contains two sections: beginning with a slow, sustained opening, Lento molto sostenuto followed by Allegro in tempo giusto e con bravura (fast in strict tempo and boldly). J.S. Bach ( M arch 31, 1685 July 28, 1750): Bach composed six violin sonatas and partitas for solo violin in 1720. T he three sonatas are in four movements organized in the order slow fast slow fast. All the sonatas second movements are in fugue form in four voices. These sonatas are in the sonata do chiesa ( c hurch sonata) style Three of this sonata s movements are in C major; the third movement is in a slow tempo (Largo) and is in the contrasting key of F major. This movement is a great example of Bach s use of continuous melody. The fourth movement is in a fast tempo (Allegro assai) with vivid and bright 16 th notes. Edward Elgar ( June 2, 1857 February 23, 1934) : Elgar was an English composer. He had little respect for English composers lik e Stanford Panry and Macherzie Sulliuan but was influenced by European composers like Handel, Dvorak and Brahms. He was also infl uenced by Wagner, Berlioz, Massenet and Saint Saens for their use of chromaticism. He wrote the E mino r sonata in 1918 and this is his only violin sonata In the same year he wrote two more ensemble works, one for string quartet and one for piano q uintet The following year his wife died and after that he did not write any more major works for 14 years. The sonata in E minor was dedicated to Marie Joshua, a friend of the Elgar family. In a letter to her he wrote, I fear it does not carry us any further but it is full of golden sounds and I like it, but you must not expect anything violently chromatic or cubist. Unfortunately, Marie died four days after receiving the letter. The first movement opens with powerful passionate and exploding sound. The main th eme is introduce d by the violin and then violin and piano trade back and forth in a musical conversation. In the middle of the movement, the mood changes from passionate to expressive ; also move from the key A minor to E minor. T his movement is a combinat ion of contrasting powerful sections and soft sections. The second movement, Romance is in a dark and sad mood the entire time. This movement starts with A major and then modulates to Bb major. This moveme nt ends with the main theme muted in the violin mu ted. The finale is very relaxing and easy on the ear.
