In honor of the Piatigorsky International Cello festival – running all this week – we are highlighting two of our newest scores by Piatigorsky himself: two versions of his Variations on a Paganini Theme!

Just in time for the festival, we have also created an exclusive version of the Variations on a Paganini Theme arranged for cello and string orchestra - a unique arrangement that can only be found at Ovation Press.

About the Piatigorsky Festival
From the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival website:
The USC Thornton School of Music and the LA Phil in partnership with The Colburn School and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra bring together masters of the cello and young cellists from around the world for a unique celebration of the cello, its music, and its musicians. Twenty-two outstanding artists, representing twelve countries, converge on Los Angeles for ten days to share their artistry and teaching experience through orchestral concerts, chamber music performances, master classes, and interactive events.
The event kicked off last Friday with a fantastic opening performance featuring seven distinguished international artists led by conductor Hugo Wolff, principal players of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and some of the finest students from the USC Thornton School of Music and The Colburn School.
An underlying theme of the festival is "Coming Together.” Check our blog String Visions for more coverage of the festival.
