    Default Crazy violion music

    I heard on my local, member-supported classical music radio station a brilliant work for the violin. It was the craziest combination of accented bowings, pizzicato, and Paganini-esque virtuosity. I did not catch the name of the composer or violinist. It was the most fascinating piece ofstring music I have ever heard would love to find out who the composer or piece was.

    Thanks guys.

    This is a bit vague.

    Was it solo violin, or was there an accompaniment (Piano, orchestra?).

    "crazy" is not a useful description, y'know. If 'intense' fits at all, maybe it was Tartini. I have heard (on recordings) Oistrakh play some intense Tartini.

    Some idle guesses, if it was for solo violin:
    Milstein - Paganiniana
    Rochberg - Caprice Variations
    Ernst - Polyphonic Studies; Erlkönig

    I guess it was a solo violin piece?

    Lol - it wasn't Paganini's Caprices then



    I heard Ravel's Tzigane being played for solo violin (no piano part). It was incredibly fierce.

    Modern/contemporary? There's a huge solo violin repertoire out there ya know!

    Guess you will have to write in and ask the music radio station unless you can come up with more specifics?
