Caprices No.’s 1 - 6 for unaccompanied violin are among Mark O’Connor’s most critically acclaimed works. Receiving great interest from performers, teachers and students of the violin, O’Connor has contributed music here which will challenge even the most gifted virtuoso. O’Connor’s caprices, like Nicolo Paganini’s and Pietre Locatelli’s, push the violin into a new direction, musically and technically, furthering the possibilities of the instrument. "Caprice’s No.’s 1 - 6" feature demanding techniques which are desirable for study purposes, and at the same time, are accessible to concert audiences. The violinist will find passages containing complex rhythms, broken chord arpeggios, two-handed pizzicato, various spicatto and double-stopped runs. In addition to these specialized skills, the violinist must master the works’ driving and aggressive rhythms in order to perfect the performance of them. This collection is appropriate for the advanced student but isolated selections could be valuable for the intermediate.

Original music printed from the composer’s manuscripts.
