I'm listening to the CD of the violin works of Benjamin Lees, played by Ellen Orner (first violin for the Baltimore Symphony) and Joel Wizansky, piano. The violin part throughout the Second Sonata is forceful and intense. In the liner notes, Orner describes the third (and almost zealous) movement:
The writing is virtuosic for both instruments, and the violin shows off some wild glissando effects in single and double stops.
Steve Schwartz via Jeffrey James Arts Consulting discusses the CD:
Summary for the Busy Executive: Not for the complacent or faint of heart... The second movement seems to lead directly into the third, where all that pent-up energy finally explodes in a biting, angry, and quick rondo, full of violin "special effects." The effects always make an emotional point, reinforcing the menace, and the two instruments generate great power. This music grabs and shakes you.
