Friday’s Sounding #17

This is a midi realization of a fragment of a piece (2:00) I began working on in 2001 but is unfinished. Since then I have worked out this idea in different ways. The catalyst for this particular piece for violin and piano is the Wheel of Fortune. I am using a rondo of four sections representing:  regno (I reign), regnavi (I have reigned), sum sine regno and regnabo (I shall reign). Most of the violin’s long sustains in the sum sine regno sections are played a quarter-tone low in relief to the piano chords to make them sound “sour”.
