A Little Dance Suite (2011)

I.               energetic, high-spirited

II.             passionate

III.           pizzicato, very playful

IV.          excited – tango – celebrative


A Little Dance Suite for solo violin includes four short pieces with individual characters. It was an attempt to explore diverse colors and techniques of the instrument. The composition was initiated as a collaboration project for solo violin and dancers, but it is intended to be performed with or without dancers. This composition was written for Jeffery Flaniken, my dear friend and an extraordinary musician.

This composition and the collaboration with various artists were made possible by the Samford Faculty Development Grant.
