How does this violin interpretation of Chopin’s Nocturne in C sharp minor sound?

The famous Polish pianist composed Nocturne No. 20 in 1830 and dedicated it to his older sister.

Violinist Stepan Grytsay decided to interpret the piece for this instrument and this is the result.

Chopin’s piece is perhaps most well known for its association with the Holocaust since it was played in a concentration camp by Natalia Karp, with the result that her life was spared. It was also featured in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist.

Grytsay has been uploading his music to Youtube for ten years and you can see much more of his work on his channel. He is currently studying music in Montreal.
