Birdsong for violin and piano (2012), commissioned by the Delaware Chamber Music Festival through funding from the DeRosa Family Fund, is written in memoriam Julian Rodescu. The work, written for Kristin Lee, violinist, and Conor Hanick, pianist, showcases the virtuosity of both piano and violin, with quick runs, intense rhythmic passages, and exploration of improvisational moments. The title refers to the birdcalls of the opening and closing, as well as the general rhapsodic nature of the violin in this piece. Premiere Date: June 22, 2012 at the Delaware Chamber Music Festival Duration: Approximately 10 minutes
