Street Music for Violin and Harpsichord (2009)

This wild, rustic piece is an image of the fiddle player, inspired by street music and musicians, such as accordionists on the street of Paris, or Flamenco dancers and musicians in small villages of Spain. The writing is improvisational, but dramatic and idiomatic to both instruments. It was dedicated to Gina DiBello and was world premiered at the concert “Music of Asako Hirabayashi” at the Olivet Congregational Church in St. Paul in 2009.
