Challenging and unusual concert pieces for the more advanced violinist
Aleksey Igudesman takes us to his homeland and then around the world with his own arrangements and humorous compositions for solo violin. Aleksey Igudesman's solution, when considering mistakes that could be made when performing well-known virtuoso pieces, was to "…write my own virtuoso pieces so that in performance I could make my own mistakes without anyone judging me." He generously invites performers of these works to "feel free to alter them in any way, be it the rhythm, articulation or even the notes and form."
Performed with great success by Aleksey Igudesman himself
Here is the chance to perform these unique and thoroughly enjoyable pieces - just as they are and also have the chance, if desired, to make some creative changes and deliver your own personal message to your audience.
The CD of this sheet music is availble at Orlando Records.
These would make terrific advanced etudes, even if they were never performed in public.
