Double Concerto for Violin and Fiddle
for Nick Naegale
November 22, 2011 by Nick Naegale and Joshua Ulrich at the Cohen Family Studio Theater at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Musicin Cincinnati, OH.
DURATION: 12 minutes
Since relocating across the river from Kentucky, I have been engrossed with violin virtuosity found in the Italian Baroque concerto and bluegrass music.
Because both styles exhibit fast, rhythmic playing on open strings and some occasional double stops, I thought the techniques found in both styles would give violinists something not only toothsome and satisfying to perform, but also fun to play.
