The Devil’s Violin

My second Music Video, first to feature one specific show, Kiva.
The piece is Giuseppe Tartini’s “The Devil’s Trill Sonata” performed by Vanessa Mae.

It’s a beautiful piece and fits perfectly with the series. With all the Violin Mythology within Kiva and the trivial facts Kivat discusses on each show, I was surprised there was no mention of this piece. Tartini composed the Devil’s Trill when he heard it in a dream, where he was encountered by a Devil. He tried to test the Devil’s violin skills and he played something incredible. When Tartini woke up he tried to write down what he had heard because it was unlike anything ever played before. Even though he completed the Violin Sonata he claimed this piece is nothing close to what he heard in his dream. I think this almost parallels Maya and Otoya’s relationship.
