I wrote my own "senior solo" for my last orchestra concert

Jul 15, 2019

I'm still really proud of myself for having pulled this off. I composed, learned and then performed an original composition as my HS senior solo! I was heavily inspired by Paganini and so endeavored to make my part as difficult as possible. I copied a lot of Paganini-esque idioms like a B theme in parallel tenths, and a lyrical middle section with extensive harmonics use. But I took my inspiration for the coda from Tchaikovsky to get maximum energy at the very end!

When listening, use the custom audio. (Don't have Pro yet so I can't set it as the default.)
