Michael Berkeley: Funerals and Fandangos (Violin Solo)
Solo violin. For unaccompanied violin Funerals and Fandangos was commissioned as the test piece For the 1984 Carl Flesch International Violin Competition. I was particularly keen in those eleven or so minutes. to try to write something that was not merely a pyrotechnic showpiece but music that tested the interpretative gifts of the player as well as the virtuosity. Michael Berkeley. Duration: 11 minutes.
