Sonata for Violin and Piano solo
This piece was finished between 1963 and 1964. It is one of the three works I created when I was still a student at National Taiwan University of Arts ( then National Arts School), and also the most significant one among the three. Sonata for Violin and Piano solo was an alternative attempt I made upon my graduation, when I decided to abandon the traditional western major-minor system of functional hamony, in order to explore a personal musical language.
There are three movements in this piece, like a sonata of the classical period. The concept of its harmonic structure was developed from the traditional tuning of a pipa.
First Movement: Overture and allegretto. This starts, carries forth, changes and sums up.
※This piece was finished in 1964. In June of the same year it was debuted at the International House of Taipei. Performers included violinist Lu Hsin-ye and pianist Hsu Tzu-chen.buy
