Abstract/Summary The purpose of this critical commentary is to explore the concept of the composerperformer relationship. In order to do so, it will consider some famous composer-violinist partnerships, which have produced repertoire reflecting both musiciansÂ’ contribution - Johannes Brahms and Josef Joachim, Dmitri Shostakovich and David Oistrakh, and Alfred Schnittke and Gidon Kremer. In addition, the commentary also seeks to ground itself in my own experience, and document the process of commissioning and performing a solo work for violin. It explores the relationship between composer Joseph Twist and myself as a violinist, specifically relating to the work performed in my final recital in March 2005, and allows me to experience first hand the composer-performer dynamic and compare my experience with those I have researched.
