I. Blue Reel
for symphony orchestra and violin solo
Christian Howes, violin solo with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra
Commissioned by Chien Tan
Winner of the University of Miami Concerto Competition
Duration: 15-16 minutes
"The Jazz Violin Concerto has all the seriousness of a classical work—three movements, sophisticated orchestration, great development—but it also has the appeal of idiomatic fiddle writing, evoking wide open skies, sort of along the lines of Aaron Copland. Finally, it's got the 'it factor' of a jazz piece, and it allows the solo voice to really shine through, taking risks."
-Christian Howes, jazz violinist
"The Concerto for Jazz Violin is groundbreaking with the use of improvised violin solos."
-Andrew Paul, US Embassy Cultural Attaché in Kiev, Ukraine
"Routenberg's Concerto for Jazz Violin and Orchestra was wonderful, its syncopated embellishments reminiscent of Aaron Copland, an American hoedown and a whole lot more. This compostion is a true keeper, every bit as fine as much of Copland and Leonard Bernstein."
-Peg Goldberg Longstreth, THE NEAPOLITAN, Naples, Florida
