Description: One great violinist tinkers like crazy with some of the most virtuosic works of an earlier great violinist, adding, rewriting, subtracting and transposing (the scordatura originals of the three great variations pieces were most of the delight of the originals, after all). Philippe Quint (violin), Dmitriy Cogan (piano).
