In this video from 2008, James Ehnes plays Hora Staccato, the showpiece by Romanian composer Grigoraș Dinicu, as arranged by Heifetz. As the name suggests, its challenges lie in fast staccato notes both up- and down-bow.

The piece features on Ehnes’s CD/DVD Homage released on Onyx Classics, on which he plays nine violins and three violas from the David L. Fulton collection, including Yehudi Menuhin’s ‘Lord Wilton’ Guarneri ’del Gesù’ and, as played in this video, the ’Baron d’Assignies’ Stradivari.
