Cluck Old Hen Variations for Solo Violin (2004) by David A. Jaffe

Karen Bentley Pollick performs Cluck Old Hen Variations for Solo Violin (2004) by David A. Jaffe at the Unitarian Church of Birmingham, Alabama on May 8, 2011.
Cluck Old Hen Variations for Solo Violin is based on the traditional Appalachian banjo tune “Cluck Old Hen.” The piece is in fact more of a fantasy than a traditional variation form, with the theme threading throughout the piece in the manner of a leitmotiv. Numerous techniques and idioms from bluegrass music merge with classical material, to form a music that occupies the space between violin and fiddle repertoire.
