Violinist Andrea Obiso performing Israeli-born composer Avner Dorman's newly-premiered unaccompanied 12 minute virtuoso violin work "For Solo Violin".
"The first movement is based on a twelve-tone row ... but the row itself contains some references to a Bach Solo Partita," Anver has told The Violin Channel.
"The second movement is a canon in two voices ... where each part moves at its own speed and with an independent voice - resulting in the sound of two violinists ... and the third movement is in the physical style of a Paganini caprice - but without the tonality," he has said.
The work was commissioned for the Semi-Final Stage of the 2017 ARD International Violin Competition.
