We may need to consider applying more passion into our violin playing.......

I never saw anyone dominate first position with a ninja warrior display.

The conductor doesn't seem upset, so does that mean all went according to plan?

I couldn't figure out what piece they were doing from that little sample, though.

Maybe something like this one?

Why the blood and screaming and the bad noise making with the violin? NO PAPAAAAA! Hard to find context for all that. I need a review of that scene. loldrooling

I can't read music, but I understand it perfectly.

It's a movie with Klaus Kinsky in it. That's probably all that really needs to be said of the madness. I can't think of a single film with him where he played a sympathetic, pleasant (or good-looking) fellow. Amazing that he fathered such an attractive daughter...

Well, so far as "finding the context" you can't expect much from a 5 minute scene with little dialog taken from somewhere in the middle of *any* movie in that regard.  I imagine that if one has actually watched the movie it maybe makes more sense.

The movie was also written and directed by Klaus Kinsky, it was the last movie he did before he died.

It is on my list of movies to watch sometime.  I tend to rather like Klaus Kinsky's characters.  True, they usually aren't very nice or pretty, but they are often quite interesting and intense.

But by all accounts I've ever heard, Paganini was kind of intense and probably more than a bit odd and possibly unpleasant to deal with, considering the syphilis and the mercury they used to treat it back then.  The blood in the scene might even be due to tuberculosis (which he also had).  Allegedly in league with the devil, by most accounts unpleasant to deal with on a personal level..

I don't know, Klaus Kinsky sounds like a fair bet for playing him, other than the height difference.  Klaus could do strange and intense characters better than most actors.  Probably because he *was* sort of strange and intense himself.

Anyway, I definitely want to see it eventually.

 

Added on the edit:  Oh, and btw.. So long as Paganini has been mentioned, I recently ran across a website with some very nice pics of his "Cannon" violin including some nice detail pics.     http://www.kevinleeluthier.com.....ganini.HTM

Haaaaa, yeah Tony I think you're spot on, lol.

So what we all know for sure is The Klaus Kinsky Classical School of Vioin, slightly on the intense side!
