Red Violin Festival 2024 Presents: The Red Violin

2h 20m
Violinist Madeleine Mitchell devised and staged the first international Red Violin festival in Cardiff with Lord Menuhin as Founder Patron in 1997, a year before the Red Violin film came out. Her festival title was inspired by Le Violon Rouge paintings by Dufy and Pougny and celebrates the violin across the arts. She is delighted to include the Red Violin film in this festival in Leeds, with her Royal College of Music final year student, the outstanding Shing Hong Chow from Hong Kong, performing the virtuosic Red Violin caprices for solo violin written by American composer John Corigliano from his film score for the Red Violin film. The Red Violin is a 1998 drama film directed by François Girard and starring Samuel L. Jackson, Carlo Cecchi and Sylvia Chang. It spans four centuries and five countries as it tells the story of a mysterious red-coloured violin and its many owners. Each of the screenings will feature a performance by Shing Hong Chow from Hong Kong, performing the virtuosic Red Violin caprices for solo violin written by American composer John Corigliano from his film score for the Red Violin film.
