Rhapsody No. 1 is the first solo piece I wrote for myself. It draws on inspiration from the Eugène Ysaÿe solo works and is intended to serve as both an étude and a stand-alone work. This piece is intended to be part of a set of 6 solo works, each of which will be inspired by an historical composer.
— Jessie Montgomery
Transcribed by the composer for viola from the original violin part. Looking for the violin version?
