Notes & Reviews:

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', 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.
