Here are two pieces from a violin sonata. They're so new I can't really access them...here they are.

Beautiful work!

Thanks, Karl!  I finally AM moving( to Ottawa) and will have access to quality musicians. Some of these works might see the light of day (though connecting w/ performers is never easy)...

Here is the finale of the violin sonata. Just completed today, it is the canons and heavy syncopation of the first movement and finishes with a lyrical solo as in the 1st mov. Though it's gratifying to finish with a bang, I choose to use materials based on the Lento 2nd at the end as that's more in character with the work in its totality.

Lovely;  restlessly epigrammatic, yet feels like a good conclusion.

Diggin' it. Reminds me in parts of Hindemith's Kammermusik. Any inspiration coming from that general direction?

It wasn't my intent, but after a couple of days distance, I was surprised to hear the similarity, which is fine by me. Its origin was in the horn ostinato; I thought I could have some fun with the figure and all of the counterpoint. It does sound a bit like cheeky Paul.
