For solo violin. This piece has its roots in a late-night conversation with violinist Jennifer Koh, who told me about her Bach & Beyond project, which combines Bach's Sonatas and Partitas with newly commissioned works, and asked if I would write a piece that referenced Bach's Partita in D Minor. Dissolve, O my Heart begins with the first chord of Bach's Chaconne, and spins out from there into an off-kilter series of chords that doubles back on itself, collapses and ultimately dissolves in a torrent of fast passages. The title comes from an aria in the St. John's Passion, but has many potential interpretations. — Missy Mazzoli
