Request score and parts.
“Duo" for violin and piano is an adventurous study of a single tune explored in various ways within the two movements of the piece. The tune appears at the opening of each movement in the Violin part, and sets the mood for the entire movement, during which the melody is fragmented, developed, and at times completely transformed into new material.
I composed the "Duo for Violin and Piano" during my second year of composition studies at Juilliard. The piece was written for my violinist friend, Nicole Jeong, who gave the premiere of the work in March 2007, in New York City.
