Violin - Difficulty: medium-difficult
Composed by Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957). 20th Century and Play Along. Sheet music and accompaniment CD. Solo part, standard notation and performance notes. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3166).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3166
ISBN 1596151951. With solo part, standard notation and performance notes. 20th Century and Play Along. 9x12 inches.

This work has been a classic from the moment Jascha Heifitz premiered it in 1947, and is as revered today as virtually any other concerted work for the violin. Korngold was such a child prodigy that he was hailed as the "Mozart of the 20th Century." And while he was known for many years primarily for his great film compositions, his operas and concert works are also recognized, especially in recent years, for their genius. This concerto uses themes from four of Korngold's great films and it is German Late Romanticism at its most splendid. For advanced players or those who love a challenge! This 2CD set includes a newly-engraved edition of the solo part on high-quality ivory paper, edited and with performance notes by Ms. Kouzmanova; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, followed by a second performance minus you, the soloist; plus a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete concerto followed by a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The recording is thoroughly indexed for your practice and performance convenience. Conductor: Nayden Todorov. Soloist: Bojidara Kouzmanova, violin. Ensemble: Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra.

  • February 21, 2006 what a great piece!

    Even though this concerto sounds a little too much like movie music, I find it very enjoyable to play and listen to. The third movement, with its lovely contrasting sections and melody, is my personal favorite movement. However, all three movements sound great, especially with the orchestra. I would also...

    like to add that the soloist in this edition did a great job on the performance.

  • August 22, 2002 The most nicest music ever...

    This is fantastic music and it is great feeling to play it. I do not like the soloist, but the orchestra version is very, very good, and it is a pleasure to play with it.

  • May 09, 2002 Good music, Not-so-good edition

    There were a few things that dissappointed me. First is that there is no piano score, you just get the solo part and the CD. In the solo part, there are three or four bad page turns (for ex., in the 3rd movt, there are a bunch of measures rest...

    , then one measure of playing before the page turn.) Also, there are very few suggestions for fingerings. The CD is mostly frustrating. It's useful to listen what's going on in the orchestra and how the solo fits in. However, it teaches a student the wrong things in solo playing: to be inflexible with interpretations, and to follow the accompaniment instead of cooperating with or leading it. This edition does have some good points. The print is very nice and clear. The music isn't cluttered, and the program and performance notes at the beginning are very informative. Overall, I give the music itself five stars, but this edition I give two out of five stars (the absence of a piano part kept it from a four.)
