Tar Hollow (for solo violin)
Suitable for intermediate players (Suzuki 4-6).
This ballad draws inspiration from folk music. The tune is sweet and freely played. Its motivic ideas are simple, tender, and fanciful. I invite you to make this piece your own and to come to the score as a framework. Breathe. Play with the phrasing, rhythm, and pacing. Embellish or expand if your imagination leads you there. Explore room to stretch and to hasten. Find new moments of space and silence. I hope you will find your own serenity and joy here.
