Quick Overview

A virtuoso, says Igudesman, is "a musician with the secret desire to play things faster than anyone else for absolutely no reason." Understanding that the performance of standard virtuoso pieces opens the musician to comparisons of all those who have gone before, Igudesman offers ten of his very own virtuoso pieces instead. Play them as given, adapt and transform, or even make mistakes (no one will know). From the very Russian Katyusha Variations to the leaps and bounds of the Tango del Diabolo, advanced violinists will enjoy bringing these successful showpieces to new audiences.
