SYNOPSIS

The unlikely pairing of two extraordinary artists, Vilmos Olah, a Hungarian born violin virtuoso, and Eric Funk, a Montana born composer, has resulted in a new piece of music unlike anything written before, that pushes the boundary of classical music and our notion of “the possible”. Vili: Concerto for Violin Alone, Op 109 redefines what music can be. Written on two staves, the top line the solo part, and the bottom line the orchestra part, Olah has to perform both parts simultaneously. He is the soloist AND the orchestra. The Violin Alone” is an extraordinary documentary film portrait of this revolutionary work of music, shared across continents, and lands that are rich with history and struggle. The music will melt in your ear, heart, and mind as the complete work is premiered in Budapest’s Nador Hall by Olah, with stunning High Definition photography and pristine surround sound audio. How close have you ever been to a violin? This film will take you closer.
