Watch a premiere performance from The Benedetti Foundation
The original tune written by trumpeter, composer and educator Wynton Marsalis, has been passed around four countries over three weeks – USA, Hungary, Finland and Serbia – from one ‘Virtuoso Violinist’ to another.
Over the last few weeks, the piece has travelled all over the world and has taken on its own unique character. They have changed rhythms, twisted notes, rewritten corners, added instrumentation and colours and effects – and along the way, local professional musicians have taught how they do it to thousands of others.
This final film brings these tunes together and takes you on a visual and aural journey around these cultures as we share the first part of the Global Violin’s story.
The final performance is available on YouTube and Facebook from 5pm on Sunday 13 December. @benedetti_fdtn @NickyBenedetti www.benedettifoundaiton.org/globlal-violin-sessions
