Paganini's 'Carnival of Venice' inspired a similar set of variations of the same name by H.W. Ernst (1814-1865). Many composers in the 19th century wrote variations on this theme (Chopin, Rossini). Marijke Rutten-Saris <mrutten
chello.nl> is very interested in every kind of information about this song.


On December 12, 1829, Paganini wrote his friend Germi: "The variations I've composed on the graceful Neapolitan ditty, 'Oh Mamma, Mama Cara,' outshine everything. I can't describe it!"
He was writing from Karlsruhe, in the midst of his triumphal tour through Germany.
That letter marks the earliest known mention of the variations that would become famous as "The Carnival of Venice." At the time of his letter, Paganini had already performed the piece in at least four concerts. From then on, it would be one of his most popular compositions.
That same year a young Moravian violinist, Henri Ernst, only 15 years old but already a virtuoso in his own right, set off on the first concert tour of his own career. He had heard Paganini in Vienna, and decided to dog the tracks of the great one, in order to hear him at every opportunity, and learn everything he could from him. He heard Paganini many times. It depressed him. But he persevered. Eventually he heard "Carnival of Venice" often enough to be was able to play it from memory. He began performing it at his own concerts.
Paganini's "Carnival" was not published until 1851, more than a decade after his death. By then, both Ernst and another young violinist, Camillo Sivori (Paganini's only pupil), were making the piece a regular part of their own repertoires. Each claimed that his version was identical to Paganini's; but in an apparent contradiction, each later published a version of the piece under his own name.
The brief, catchy tune, only 16 bars long, lends itself beautifully to variations. More than a hundred years after Paganini's first composition, an American trumpeter named Harry James made the tune popular all over again, with his own variations.
Accompanists, however, tend to hate it: Paganini's original accompaniment consisted of two only two chords, alternating every two measures throughout the piece.
This drove at least one orchestra member nearly to distraction. As a contemporary noted:

"In an incredibly full theatre, Paganini was improvising from 30 to 40 virtuoso variations on 'Carnival of Venice,' a well-known melody with continual passages in the tonic and dominant. This was not very engrossing for the violist Wolf, who had nothing to play but the notes -- C-sharp, D, D, C-sharp -- repeated endlessly, alternately in whole notes and eighth notes. Eventually, the violist (who was, anyway, mesmerized by the soloist's performance) lost his place. It held not the slightest importance for the composition in question, but Paganini, whose rapport with the theater orchestra was already strained enough, was irritated by the distraction. Hw went right up to the foot- lights and yelled at the bewildered Wolf: 'That's not it!' and didn't move from there until that poor devil, who was literally splitting from fear, got himself back in order with his C-sharp, D, D, C-sharp.
"At that point some brazen dilettants who were among the public felt the need to say, 'The passage must be of a formidable difficulty if such an excellent instrumentalist of the Frankfurt orchestra cannot play it without a mistake.'"

Compiling a new CD is quite a job. On one hand musicians like to display their prowess and tackle less know repertoire however on the other hand the repertoire should also fit with the expectations of the listeners. This is also the case with this CD from Duo Stoica. On this CD Duo Stoica has striven to compile a CD that combines well known pieces with lesser known works in a program displaying a similar atmosphere.

Razvan performs these works in the way that only Razvan can, with fire, enthusiasm and full of life. The lesser known virtuoso works are also brought to life with the same virtuosity and passion. It is the diversity of these works combined with Razvan’s virtuoso reading that makes this CD unique.

ID: ACDHH046-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Viola

Since the beginning of musical history, the violin has played the leading role, while the viola has remained in an accompanying one. The viola has a rich and warm sound, and so is often considered as the ideal chamber music instrument. The larger size of the viola means that the distance the fi ngers have to cover between the notes is greater and therefore the margin of error is increased. Considering this difference, it is of course easier to play virtuosic passages on the violin. But should the viola only be destined to play chamber music? Several violists in the course of history have wrestled with this matter. Having asked himself this question for a few years, Màtè Szücs realises his own vision with this CD.
