The Music for 4 Violins series was created to help bring students together so that they can play in the true sense of the word. I want to help fill their lives with energetic and gratifying new music that is in touch with the pulse of their generation. Volume 2 is intended for violinists with more fluency in 3rd, 4th, and 5th positions and has compositions that explore a richer emotional realm than Volume 1. Compositional features that are presented in this volume include:
- Highly melodic and pulse-oriented motifs.
- Mixed meter writing and 5/8 and 7/8 time signatures.
- Compositional writing that is idiosyncratic to the violin.
- Fun extended techniques: harmonics, col legno, slides, and foot stomps.
