Founder’s Reel is a piece for solo violin that employs multiple virtuosic string techniques including fast changing multiple stops and left-hand pizzicato. The piece has a folk style melody that shifts through key centers and develops counter-melodies through counterpoint. Throughout Founder’s Reel, the counterpoint creates alternate melodic material and can generate up to three different lines weaving around the original melody. This work requires very fast finger work and outstanding technique to ensure that the double and triple stops are played in tune. For a challenging solo piece, Founder’s Reel is a fun and energetic work that can really develop a player’s skill.
