ARRANGEMENTS

I was inspired to arrange for unaccompanied violin due to composer and virtuoso pianist Franz Liszt. Liszt was known for performing his own solo piano arrangements of symphonies and operas in his recitals. In my arrangements, I explore all of the possibilities of polyphonic solo violin playing, and strive to make them valuable additions to the violin recital and encore repertoire.
