Rachel Barton Pine—Solo Violin Work Dedicated to the Rebirth of a Nation

Mohammed Fairouz’s Sonata for solo violin is a personal and a political statement

Mohammed Fairouz and I met last year and hit it off right away. In response to the uprising in Egypt, which had just begun, he composed the lament “For Egypt,” now the central third movement of his Sonata for solo violin. Rather than following a traditional structure, the sonata ends with a fifth-movement lullaby celebrating the voice of my 1742 “ex-Soldat” Guarneri del Gesù.
