For Solo Violin

COMPOSER'S NOTES
Wayang (2009) for violin solo is somewhat related to my earlier composition Wayang for large percussion ensemble, strings, soprano and several prepared instruments (the piece was first performed at theWarsaw Autumn International Music Festival). Both compositions were partially inspired by Gamelan – a classical Indonesian orchestra – in which the most important are the percussion instruments. The piece is in one movement and combines some Baroque idioms (first introduced in the key of G - minor) with several modern techniques, including foot stomping (percussion and theatrical effects associated with Gamelan performances). Wayang was written for violinist Karen Lim-Smith and is dedicated to her. The piece was premiered by Karen Lim-Smith during the 2009 NACUSATexas Conference/National Association of Composers USA, at Stephen F.Austin State University, Nacogdoches,TX(February 2009).
