Bolcom, William - Graceful Ghost Rag Concert Variation for Violin and Piano - published by Edward B. Marks Music

Item# V489 167

Shar: $12.95Sale: $11.66

In Stock

  • Instrumentation: Violin & Piano
  • Composer: Bolcom
  • Publisher: Edward B. Marks
"The Graceful Ghost Rag was originally written for solo piano in 1970 and was arranged for violin and piano in 1979. It is an elegant and fun short piece that features a great partnership between the violin and piano. Although the piece may sound simple when you listen to it, when playing it you may discover it is not as simple as it sounds.

Any theme with variation has the initial challenge of making each variation interesting. In addition to this, there are syncopated rhythms throughout the piece, several double-stops, and artificial harmonics in the violin part. I highly recommend this piece for any violinist who needs a short piece for a recital or wants to have an enjoyable collaboration with their pianist."

Bolcom, William - Second Sonata for Violin and Piano - Hal Leonard Publication

Item# 1392 112

Shar: $22.95Sale: $20.69

In Stock

  • Instrumentation: Violin & Piano
  • Composer: Bolcom
  • Publisher: Hal Leonard
Twenty-three years and four more works for violin and piano separate William Bolcom's two violin sonatas. The Second Sonata, premiered in 1979 by Sergiu Luca on violin and the composer at the piano, pays homage to the great jazz violinist Joe Venuti, whom Bolcom greatly admired. Though the jazz influence is not overt until the final movement, the overall feel of the work should reflect both the improvisatory, laid-back nature of jazz, and the virtuosity of great players like Venuti. The sonata alternates between moments of subtle "blues vibe" and explosive energy.

William Bolcom - Pastorale for Violin and Piano - Violin and Piano - Edward B. Marks Music/Hal Leonard

Item# 1012 167

$12.99

In Stock

  • Instrumentation: Violin
  • Composer: Bolcom
  • Publisher: Hal Leonard
One of his earliest chamber works, William Bolcom's Pastorale for Violin and Piano was premiered in 1962, with Bolcom's composition teacher (and the work's dedicatee), John Verrall, on the violin. The piece is in three short movements, which follow the unusual pattern of fast-moderate-slow, with the middle movement being a set of variations. Best suited to advanced players, Pastorale would also make a great introduction to contemporary music for the advanced student.
