Terence Johns - Sky Blue (Violin & Piano)

Terence Johns - Sky Blue (Violin & Piano)

Another piece in the Blue series for solo instruments and piano, this time for violin and piano. Slow, dreamy and written in the high register of the violin, it has a soft fluid middle section suggestive of bird song. It was first performed by Alisdair Savage at the Little Venice Music Festival in London in 2004 and since then at the BBC in Glasgow and the Elgar Society's concerts in Edinburgh. A difficult piece that needs a secure high register.

Review: "Sky Blue for violin and piano by Terence Johns is marked 'slow and dreamy' and, after a piano introduction, features a 14 bar violin melody exploiting the far reaches of the E string - a suitably soaring yet gentle passage given the works title. It is both high enough and awkward enough to challenge the advanced student to play it in tune and with beauty of sound. However, the player does have two further attempts at exactly the same melody, with just the merest dynamic alteration in the second and slight embellishment to the piano accompaniment in the third." - David Angel in Music Teacher May/June 2007
