Corigliano Chaconne for piano and violin
on: April 11, 2005, 11:24:39 PM
Just picked this piece up and was wondering if anybody could help me out with a few notation details....

What is meant by the word "ossia"? The word is placed over a nine note fragment and my theory is you play it quickly in free time.  It's the part where the violin comes out of the cadenza and the strings start their psychotic pizz part after the brass glisses.

Also, the score says that diamond noteheads are to be "silently depressed and held" but what effect is desired? Sympathetic vibrations triggered by other notes being played?

Thanks in advance.

Ossia = Or

Are you playing Corigliano´s The Red Violin Chaconne?
The masterpiece tell the performer what to do, and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the cocomposer what he ought to have composed.

I don't know the piece, but normally, you should play it if you feal to play it, or to replace the note. One of those possibilities.

Yeah the Red Violin Chaconne.  A violin player friend of mine might be up to the task.  I haven't shown her the music yet but I am very much aware of how monstrously difficult it is.  She might be up to it and expressed a desire to try it so why not?

It probably won't transfer over to the piano TOO well but I really want to absorb some of the stuff in there.

If this piece is anything like his etude fantasy, then it is amazing.
