César Franck's Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major
Katheryn E. Kuntz
Dr. Sam McClure, Faculty Mentor

The music of French composer César Franck (1822-1890) is famous for its use of the cyclical method. One of the most celebrated examples of this compositional device is Franck's Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major, which features the restatement of several melodic themes throughout its four movements. The work also features examples of Franck's chromatic approach to harmony. The first two movements of the sonata, labeled allegretto moderato and allegro, will be performed following a brief introduction.
