ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"La Folia" means "The Madness" and is related to English words such as "Fool", "Folly" etc. Each variation depicts this in some way or another, finally building to an exciting Grand Finale that includes elements of some of the previous variations. Composed and performed by Matthew C. Weiss in a style and difficulty level similar to Paganini's 24 Caprices for Solo violin, full of drama, invention, and technical fireworks, this set of variations explores the many capabilities of the violin and what can be accomplished by today's concert artists.

The first track contains the performance as a duet with Matt playing both the first and second violin parts. Tracks two and three begin with 3 metronome clicks and emphasize either the first or second violin parts respectively. These tracks are included so that violinists can play along with the CD on the other part.

The sheet music for Variations on "La Folia" For Violin Duet is published by Editions Musica Ferrum and is also available on Amazon.com (search on La Folia duet).

Great art!
I know Matthew C. Weiss from quite a while and always knew that he's a great performer. However I wasn't aware of his compositional abilities.

I'm very pleased to say that his variations on the well know theme 'La Folia' are simply great. He approached different eras of composing and different styles with ease and each one blends with the other very well.

The recording itself works very well, even though he recorded both parts of the violin duet himself. This recording is a proof that technology can be of great aid to those with a creative mind!

Five stars rating and thumbs up for this record!
