One of America’s finest and most widely recognized composers, John Corigliano has won several Grammy Awards, the Pulitzer Prize and dozens of other honours.

His hauntingly beautiful Chaconne and virtuosic The Red Violin Caprices, both based on his Academy Award winning film score for The Red Violin, attest to his maverick imagination, while a famous passage from Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is the seed from which Fantasia on an Ostinato grew.

The Violin Sonata, one of Corigliano’s earliest works, combines sophistication and vigor.

A graduate of the Juilliard School New York and the Music Academie of Cologne, Ida Bieler received top honours and the Heimsuth Award. Four great instrumentalists guided her musical development: Ruggiero Ricci and Oscar Shumsky in USA ; Max Rostal and Nathan Milstein in Europe .

“Corigliano could have made a comfortable living churning out film scores: his versatility, orchestral wizardry and fluency are undeniable.” BBC Music Magazine
