John Corigliano's reconstructed, newly-engraved score is available for rental along with François Girard's re-mastered, award-winning 1998 film The Red Violin. Full scores for the conductor and solo violinist have been prepared along with a preview video that includes punches, streamers, and mininal click, for syncing your orchestra's live performance with the film. The film is available for screening with English, French, and Traditional Chinese subtitles, with additional languages available upon request.
The Red Violin in Concert is a co-production of Schirmer Theatrical, LLC and Rhombus Media Inc., with the music under license from G. Schirmer, Inc.
For more information on the production, please visit Schirmer Theatrical. For bookings, please visit Wasserman.
Before the premiere, I rehearsed for five days with Dina Gilbert, the conductor, and Bernard Gariepy Strobl, the sound engineer who worked on the the original film.
Dina had headphones with occasional clicks, and we both had screens with the film and what are called flutters, streamers, and punches. Flutters are little white circle flashes that give you the upcoming tempo, streamers are green lines that give you an exact intro time, and punches are the "hit," which of course one would be late for were it not for the flutters and streamers!
