Violin Sonata No. 2 Going to the Sun by Frank Felice

Written for violin and piano, approx. 20 minutes in duration, audio featuring Vanessa Porter and midi piano, blog post. Here are the composer’s notes on his piece and his home state of Montana, “This sonata is a very accessible, single movement, 13 episode piece that uses as a framing device the beautiful scenic elements of Glacier National Park that are close to, viewed from, or a short walk away from the marvelous roadway called the Going to the Sun highway. My hope is that the music reflects at least some of the beauty of this part of Montana with it’s clear stumbling streams, cloud crowned mountains, green forests, red and grey rocks, multi-colored meadows of flowers, and it’s calm, cold lakes. “
