For solo violin. The original music Walk for one dancer and violinist was commissioned by Compagnie Trans. The four pieces that compose this sonata are from the performance piece Laurence Marthouret choreographed for a dancer and a violinist, entitled Walk, and interpreted by Sona Khochafian in 2001. The project originated from a shared conception of the two art forms, an equal collaboration between choreographic and musical composition. Its central idea was to utilize Laban?s choreographic notation system, which accompanies and parallels the musical notation, allowing for an extreme precision in the playing out of the dance-music relationship. Largely cut and recomposed to arrive at this concert version, Walk-Sonata still maintains its four discreet parts, the four sides of a square of the choreographic composition and is therefore strongly linked to the original choreography. This is discernible not only in the formal four movement structure, but also in the music’s multiple rhythms, dynamics and phrasing, which are consistently, if not tightly, joined to the dance gesture. Walk-Sonata is dedicated to Sona Khochafian and Laurence Marthouret.
