Cinque danze per violino solo (1998)

For violin solo, cca 15’
Julie-Anne Derome commission

Program note
Rhythms, modes and atmospheres of these dances are inspired from the traditional Balkan music. Although, there is no quotations. All five dances have in common the iterative notes with different functions in each movement. I try to create different climates while keeping material and gesture strongly related.
