Blue Piece for violin and piano is a musical poem which honors the American down-home, twelve-bar blues. Its relaxed, laid-back melodic line meanders about chord tones, dwelling on the "blue third" interval of its key areas D major and Db major. I encourage you to be "languid and humid" with the music, and to seize each opportunity to bend the pitch of each "blue third" to make the listener yearn for resolution.

In this two-minute work, I re-imagined the traditional blues form (twelve bars in 4/4 meter divided into 3 phrases) as a blues in the form of twenty-one bars in 6/4 meter divided into three phrases. -Libby Larsen, 2018
