The Red Violin: Chaconne for Violin and Orchestra (Piano Reduction)
John Corigliano's The Red Violin: Chaconne for Violin and Orchestra draws upon music he composed for the film of the same name, which won an Academy Award for best film score. The story spans three centuries in the life of a magnificent but haunted violin in its travels through space and time. Corigliano composed this 17-minute concert work for violin and full orchestra as he scored the film.

Orginal Latin Songs for Beginning String Orchestra
String ensembles will enjoy "Mimi's Minor Mambo", a dance tune inspired by the traditional Afro-Cuban music played by the Caribbean island nations' charanga ensembles. Charanga, sometimes called the grandfather of salsa, combines several European musical ideas such as harmony, instrumentation, and form with the complex rhythmic structures of Afro-Cuban music. "Sambasaurus" is inspired by Brazilian samba. Expand your skill sets by playing these two originals with your string quintet or student string orchestra.
Set includes one score and a complete set of string orchestra parts.
Note: We feel that the two pieces in this collection require a more advanced player. Some of the skills required are: syncopation, off beats, accidentals, and playing up to 5th position for violin.
