Concerto for Amplified Violin and Chamber Orchestra was written for James Ricardo and the Kenwood Chamber Orchestra of Minneapolis, MN. The first two of the three movements, Fantasy, and Andante Sostenuto, make use of the Skye Boat Song, a beautiful Scottish melody heard by the composer on a trip though the Hebrides. The electronic amplification and modification of the violin allows an exploration of sound qualities largely inaudible when played only accoustically. An explanation of the amplification and mixing is included at the beginning of the score pdf.
Parts are available upon requst.
