The Red Violin Caprices are derived from John Corigliano's music for The Red Violin, which received the 1999 Academy Award for Best Original Score. The Caprices were composed especially for Joshua Bell. 'These Caprices, composed in conjunction with the score for Fran├žois Girard's film The Red Violin, take a spacious, troubadour-inspired theme and vary it both linearly and stylistically. These variations intentionally evoke Baroque, Gypsy, and arch-Romantic idioms as they examine the same materials (a dark, seven-chord chaconne as well as that principal theme) from differing aural viewpoints. The Caprices were created and ordered to reflect the structure of the film, in which Bussotti, a fictional 18th-century violin maker, crafts his greatest violin for his soon-to-be-born son. When tragedy claims wife and child, the grief-stricken Bussotti, in a gesture both ardent and macabre, infuses the blood of his beloved into the varnish of the instrument. Their fates thus joined, the violin travels across three centuries through Vienna, London, Shanghai and Montreal, passing through the hands of a doomed child prodigy, a flamboyant virtuoso, a haunted Maoist commissar, and at last a willful Canadian expert, whose own plans for the violin finally complete the circle of parent and child united in art.' - John Corigliano.

  • August 04, 2008 The Red Violin Caprices

    These are a lot of fun, but I wouldn't suggest them for anyone without a good practicing schedule! The first caprice is just the theme, and not as difficult, but they are increasingly difficult. The music is beautiful, and anyone who has seen the movie, or even someone who...

    hasn't, will enjoy this immensly.

  • April 30, 2007 I should have known

    that this wouldn't be the exact score for the Red Violin soundtrack, like practically all movie music publications. It's a dumbed down version of the Red Violin soundtrack with only about 6 songs, but it's still plenty difficult. I mean Paganini Caprice difficult. The first piece was...

    disappointing though, Anna's theme. It's a rather lame transposition.

  • May 13, 2006 awesome!!!

    The pieces are challenging if you want it to sound perfect. For example, variation 3 is written in double stops in octaves. My favourite is variation (called Etudes on the soundtrack). Once you get used to the string crossings it's fun to play
