Description
One of America's finest and most widely recognized composers, John Corigliano has won several Grammy Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, and dozens of other honors. His hauntingly beautiful Chaconne and virtuosic The Red Violin Caprices are both based on his Academy Award–winning film score for The Red Violin, while a famous passage from Beethoven's Seventh Symphony is the seed from which Fantasia on an Ostinato grew. The 1963 Violin Sonata, one of his earliest works, combines sophistication and vigor. A past winner of the Echo Klassik Award and the Cannes Classical Award, violinist Ida Bieler formerly played with the Melos Quartet.

"Corigliano's early Violin Sonata is now a repertoire piece with this sparkling performance…. It offers the performers plenty of display and yet contains lyrical passages such as the second movement…. The Caprices are demanding solos with Bieler well in control."—Gramophone

"The American-born Ila Bieler has spent most of her career in Europe, but she clearly hasn't lost her touch for John Corigliano's idiom. She gets both the delicacy and the grandeur of the early Violin Sonata…. The Chaconne and five Caprices are tossed up with the ultimate in virtuosic fire. Nina Tichman, whose history is much like Bieler's, is an admirable partner throughout."—Dallas Morning News
