"What do you do when the thing you wanted, so perfect, just comes?" - Morritz
Academy Award-winning director François Girard’s 1998 film, The Red Violin, is available for screening live with the original Oscar-winning score by John Corigliano.
The Red Violin follows the intricate history of a mysterious antique violin from its creation by a legendary violin maker in 1681 Cremona, Italy, to an auction house in modern-day Montreal where it draws the eye of an expert appraiser (Samuel L. Jackson). Follow the violin’s journey as it travels through five different countries over the course of four centuries, impacting all who play it.
The Red Violin in Concert comes with the film, complete score and parts, a click track, and a preview film programmed with punches and streamers for the conductor and soloist to view on monitors. Conductor and solo violinist to be engaged separately. This production is under license from Rhombus Media, Inc. and G. Schirmer, Inc.
Immerse yourself in Corigliano’s score before you hear it played live during The Red Violin in Concert! Conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, the film score soundtrack features Anna’s Theme in its many iterations as the violin journeys from Cremona to Vienna, Oxford, Shanghai, and finally, Montréal. The soundtrack also includes Corigliano’s Red Violin Chaconne for Violin and Orchestra, his 17-minute work that preceded and inspired the film score.
