Made available from composer's original edition
Juxtaposing soulful cantabile with capricious rhapsody, BREAKING BREAD culminates in a quotation from the African American spiritual “Let Us Break Bread Together,” the only clue to the meaning behind the work’s enigmatic title. Virtuosity is balanced with melodic invention of great warmth and depth, engaging the listener from beginning to end. For advanced performers. (Also available for solo violin: 114-42375.)
