This is the first complete recording of Scelsi's works for solo violin. They span from the earlier "Divertimenti," in his more traditional virtuoso style, to the two later works which find Scelsi exploring the sound "inside of the note."

Divertimento No. 2 receives its first recording here (Divertimento No. 1 has never been found).
