The Violin Alone

The Impossible

Clip | 1m 49s | Video has closed captioning.

“Vili: Concerto for Violin Alone” is an extreme concerto that pushes the boundaries of music and our notion of the possible. Oláh must play the solo and orchestra parts simultaneously. It presents a seemingly impossible task; he must emulate flutes, oboes, clarinet, and timpani, and must move his bow towards the bridge in an exact position to capture crisp brass punch of a trumpet fanfare.
