Sonatina for Violin and Piano
This work was written with the idea of providing something that, though in a modern idiom (as it then was), would be easy to follow and not too difficult to play. For that reason, I chose the shortened sonata form and the type of material I thought suitable to my purpose. The first movement, like that of the Sextet, is in traditional form and is followed by a purely melodic slow movement lasting only for 37 bars. The third movement consists of a Theme followed by five Variations and a short re-statement of the first part of the theme. The fourth Variation is a Waltz.
The Sonatina was written in 1943.
