At the end of the decade, the Boston Symphony Orchestra asked Corigliano to write a symphony to commemorate its 100th anniversary. In response to the request the composer decided to expand his 1996 String Quartet – not just to orchestrate it, but to rethink the composition completely for string orchestra, crossing the scale of the symphony with the intimacy and interconnected part-writing of chamber music. The work was premiered in November 2000 in Boston with Seiji Ozawa conducting, and won the composer a Pulitzer Prize in 2001. Symphony No. 2 is cast in five movements: Prelude, Scherzo, Nocturne, Fugue and Postlude. The work is both traditional – the movements have conventional, historically rooted titles – and atypical – it does not follow the common four-movement layout.

The 1999 film The Red Violin, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Greta Scacchi, concerns a three-hundred year old violin, mysteriously haunted by the soul of its maker’s wife. The film documents the instrument’s journey from 17th-century Cremona through Victorian England (in the hands of a Paganini-like virtuoso) and the Chinese Cultural Revolution to 20th-century Montreal. Corigliano arranged the music he wrote for the film into the suite featured on this disc – a mini concerto in a single movement for solo violin with timpani, percussion, harp and strings, which effectively condenses the musical narrative of the film.
