"THE RED VIOLIN" IN CONCERT FEATURING JOSHUA BELL
TUESDAY, OCT 16 2018, - SATURDAY, OCT 20 2018
Acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell joins the New York Philharmonic for a live-to-film performance of this Oscar-winning story of a violin’s epic journey from 18th century Italy to today’s Canada.
In anticipation of the birth of his first child, master violinmaker Nicolo Bussotti begins what will be his greatest achievement. But when his wife dies in childbirth, what was meant as a celebratory offering quickly becomes a fixation. Overwhelmed with grief, Bussotti continues his work determined to create an everlasting tribute to his love: a perfect violin imbued with her spirit. So begins the story of The Red Violin, as it travels across continents, cultures and centuries inspiring passion and obsession in every life it touches.
The Red Violin is a 1998 drama film directed by François Girard. The screenplay was inspired by a historic 1720 Stradivarius violin nicknamed the "Red Mendelssohn". The film was shot in Austria, Canada, China, England and Italy and features a soundtrack by John Corigliano, with solos performed by violinist Joshua Bell, and, starring as Kaspar Weiss, by nine-year old Austrian Christoph Koncz.
The film received numerous honors, including the Academy Award for Best Original Score.
