Variations for solo violin from four centuries.
"Though radically different in style, the pieces share an introspective, dirge-like quality that combined with their striking beauty and intensity plucks at the listener's heart-strings with the facility with which Makarski performs... Caoine is provocative, enlightening and moving."
