George Antheil: The Works For Violin And Piano

Books | Violin, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: George Antheil
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
The American modernist composer George Antheil was known in his time for his 'futuristic' compositions, and is now regarded as one of the first composers to go 'beyond Stravinsky' in sound experimentation. These four Violin Sonatas and one Sonatina use devices such as tone clusters, complex irrational meters, additive silence and timbral distortion. They are not only an often-overlooked part of musical history but are also excellent pieces in their own right; challenging yet rewarding to play.
