The Heifetz Collection, Vol. 3
Arrangements and Transcriptions for Violin and Piano
by Jascha Heifetz

HeifetzThe third volume of the Heifetz Collection is a treasure trove of material for violinists, including many items that have never been published before. Jascha Heifetz (1901-1987) remains a landmark among violinists of the twentieth century, a performer who virtually redefined the limits of the possible for his chosen instrument. These transcriptions and arrangements, made to enrich his own repertoire, will be a great boon to young virtuosos looking for a challenge. Many of them were provided by the Heifetz family and are published here for the first time. Music by Albeniz (Sevilla), Castenuovo-Tedesco (Ritmo di Tango), Debussy (La chevelure), Fauré (Aubade), Kodaly (Danube-Tisza), Prokofieff (Gavotta, Op. 32) among others are included in this handsome collection, which is a must purchase for players and lovers of fine violin music.

Vera of Las Vegas
A Nightmare Cabaret Opera in One Act
by Daron Aric Hagen

VeraDaron Aric Hagen has crafted an extraordinary post-modern music theater piece that draws on a cornucopia of musical styles, classical and popular. Set in a night club in Las Vegas, Vera involves four characters whose alienation from themselves and each other leads to bizarre consequences. The cast includes two suspected IRA operatives on the lam, undercover agents and the title character, a sensationally portrayed African-American transvestite. The cleverness of Paul Muldoon's libretto is matched by Daron Hagen's richly imagined and characterful music, by turns wild and touching. The published vocal score includes the complete compact disc "original cast recording" (with libretto) that has recently been released on the CRI label.
