Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar


"Funny how some musicians find fame. Philippe Quint has been attracting very good notices in this magazine and elsewhere for some time, but it was losing his violin in a New York taxi and then giving a free concert as a thank you to the driver who returned it that has made him famous (at least in the US). Here he proves again that he has talent to back up his newly boosted profile."

John Corigliano has revisited his score for the 1997 film The Red Violin several times. In The Red Violin Caprices, content is allied to a technique making strenuous demands on the performer. The pensive Theme is identical in substance to that heard in the earlier Chaconne (Naxos 8.559306), and its five variations range in style from the Paganinian virtuosity of the first, to the restrained 'folk' tinge of the third. Corigliano's Violin Sonata is among his earliest acknowledged works, its final Allegro enhanced by some scintillating instrumental interplay. Coming from a very different musical background, and representing a very different musical aesthetic, Virgil Thomson's music displays a skilful assimilation of Gallic clarity and an American-derived nostalgia, with hymn tunes and traditional songs often being evident. "I just heard Philippe Quint's new recording of my Red Violin Caprices and he was absolutely amazing." - John Corigliano
