This paper is a detailed study of one of John Corigliano's early works, the Sonata for Violin and Piano. It explores various aspects of his music, including elements of form, style, and his philosophy of composition. The reader will discover the circumstances that have enabled him to make a name for himself in today's musical scene through the study of the composition that launched his career. The primary focus of this paper is an analysis of the overall structure of the work, as well as a detailed thematic analysis of each movement. Part of the analysis compares ideas from the sonata to works by influential composers such as Samuel Barber. The paper also compares the sonata to some of the composer's later work, demonstrating both changes and consistency in compositional style.
