Composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich - 'Fantasy' for Solo Violin [PREMIERE RECORDING]

Violinist Jinjoo Cho performing the world premiere recording of acclaimed American composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s 'Fantasy' for Solo Violin

South Korean violin virtuoso Jinjoo Cho performing the world premiere recording of acclaimed American composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Fantasy for Solo Violin.

Commissioned for the 2014 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, the 6-minute solo work appears on Jinjoo's newly-released The Indianapolis Commissions disc - featuring a compilation of the competition's commissioned works from 1982-2014.

"Fantasy was a commission from the Indianapolis International Violin Competition and each semi-finalist was required to perform the work ... of course, I knew that anyone who got to the semi-finals would have incredible fingers, so I wanted to give them the opportunity to express themselves musically in individual ways ..." Ellen has told The Violin Channel.

"I hope listeners sit back and let the piece and its performer speak to them ... as I often say, a music score is black marks on white paper, and it's the performers who breathe life into it ..." the former Pulitzer Prize for Music winner has said.

"I still feel the magic involved in all of this - and I hope the listener does, too."
