Henryk Wieniawski was not only one of the most important violin virtuosos in the 19th century but also wrote tailor-made showpieces for his instrument – thus making some brilliant contributions to the repertoire. With his Scherzo-Tarantella it is as if he could not decide whether to write a classical subdued Scherzo or an unrestrained Italian folkdance. So he chose a double title and thus aptly captured the unique character of this captivating piece. This edition contains the detailed original fingerings and bowings from the first edition – occasionally supplemented by the editor Ray Iwazumi, a renowned authority on the repertoire.
