Concert fantasies on themes of popular opera arias, duets, choral or symphonic episodes loved by the public are an integral part of the repertoire of outstanding instrumental soloists. The beauty of such works is that the most complex virtuoso techniques of performance are easy to understand and appreciate on the basis of well-known “ear-pleasing” material. The listener is involved in some kind of intellectual game, where he must learn the topic and appreciate its reincarnation. The virtuoso works in this genre of the Spanish violinist and composer Pablo Sarasate (1844-1908) are considered standard. His playing was distinguished by exceptional technical excellence, his performing style influenced the formation of the violin art of the 20th century. The famous "Introduction and Rondo-Capriccioso" by Saint-Saens, "Scottish Fantasy" by Brujah, "Spanish Symphony" by E.Lalo, Second Concerto by G. Wieniawski, Mazurek by A. Dvořák, and many other works.
Great violinists of the 19th and 20th centuries created and developed the tradition of concert interpretation… And although the German composer Paul Hindemith likened virtuosity to drugs, his gloomy prediction that this path to musical madness was clearly not justified!
