Razvan Stoica - Wieniawski Variations

A violinist plays beautiful Variations on a Theme, by Henri Wieniawski


By Maddy Shaw Roberts

This is how to make all classical music lovers cry, using a violin and the perfect amount of vibrato.

Razvan Stoica, an Instagram violinist and photographer, has shared an absolutely stunning performance of himself playing Wieniawksi's Variations on an Original Theme.

The Romantic composer's variations come alive on Razvan's instrument, and the expressive nature of the piece is even more amplified by the violinist's incredible use of vibrato and dynamic contrast.

Great work, Razvan – find more from him on Instagram.
