The three movements of Shapiro's "Violin Sonata: The High Line" represent Manhattan's High Line park at different times of the day (I. At Morning, II. At Night, III. At Day).
Gregory Fulkerson, the featured violinist of the sonata, writes: "I love the forthright and amiable spirit that permeates the piece; it is definitely in a pop style, yet Shapiro handles the standard acoustic sonorities deftly and there is a wealth of detail in the patterns of the violin. I don't know anything else quite like it."
