Anakin's Theme (John Williams) for solo violin

Ian Peaston

Violin Variations

60 plays

Here’s another track from today’s rehearsal. It’s my own solo violin arrangement of Anakin’s Theme from Star Wars by John Williams,with  polyphonic violin techniques like those used by Bach and Bartok et al. to get all the notes from Williams’ rich orchestral score onto one instrument. I’m doing this on electric violin with some longish reverb effects to enhance the polyphony, but it could be played just as easily on an acoustic violin.

No loop pedals were harmed in the making of this track.
