The Violin Futura Project is a set of recitals featuring currently 34 commissioned solo violin miniatures written for and performed by Piotr Szewczyk. It showcases the multitude of divergent styles and compositional approaches present on the musical scene at the beginning of the 21 st Century. Three levels of analysis are performed in this treatise: archetypal, harmonic, and extended notation/techniques. Archetypal analysis shows the connections to the past as seen in these modern pieces, and puts them in a socio-cultural and musical context. Analysis of harmonic language and extended techniques showcases the divergent approaches and pedagogical challenges. The chapter on pedagogical approaches talks about the various approaches to learning and interpreting these and other contemporary pieces. Conclusion draws larger connections and gives advice to violinists and pedagogues on ways to incorporate contemporary music into pedagogical and performance settings, how to find and connect with composers, how to develop specific skills needed for interpretation and performance of contemporary music.
