Violinist, VC Young Artist Nathan Meltzer performing the world-premiere performance of American composer and pianist Julian Gargiulo’s Sonata for Violin & Piano No. 3 – with the composer at the keyboard.
“My 3rd Violin and Piano Sonata was written for the Final Round of the 2018 Getting to Carnegie Competition and I’m happy to have recorded it for the first time with the fabulous violinist Nathan Meltzer – winner of the competition …” Julian has told The Violin Channel.
“These ideas and rhythms can come from the ‘outside’ world of my daughter’s laughter, my son’s feet on the parquet, the accelerating wheels of a high-speed train … or the ‘inside’ world of my mind … I hope my listeners find a bit of truth in the music – and a bit of joy as well.”
