Theme & Variations for Solo Violin (2018)

Theme and Variations was written for my good friend and talented violinist, Xenia St. Charles Gilbert. It explores some of my favorite techniques in string writing within the context of a very loutish and chromatic theme. I often enjoy writing a set of variations as it gives the composer an artistic playground of musical possibilities and explores new technical dynamics of familiar instruments.
