I'm just wondering if anybody out there has a favorite concerto. For me I love the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. (Of course I'm a violinist, so I am biased towards the instrument) The Tchaikovsky is dream piece and I am working toward playing it someday. T
There are so many great pieces. The Barber violin concerto, the Lalo Cello Concerto, the Rachmaninoff's 2nd piano concerto. What's your favorite?
I don't know many concertos, but I like Concerto in A and Concerto in D. I'm working on it.
Do you know who the composer is? What instrument?
I think the composer is Bach
Ah yes. Then the Concerto in D would be the Bach Double violin concerto. Very nice. The Concerto in A minor is also very good. Are you working on both, or just one?
The concerto in A is by Vivadi, just so you know.
And I'm working on both, but more of the concerto in D.
Those are great concertos. If you ever want any suggestions for others to listen to, feel free to ask. There are so many great violin concertos and sonatas. If you like the Bach, listen to the Bach concerto in A minor.
Where can I get the music to listen?
The first movement of the Bach Double Violin Concerto. I played it once for a concert and the violinists were simply amazing. I can't stop listening to it.
Thanks for the cool link snowflake. I'll have to check that out more, especially when I get a piece assigned. I just wish they always listed the instrumentation. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't.
All Paganini's concerto are worth listening, especially the one called "La Campanella".
Pachelbel's music is nice too.
I played the Mendelsshon a few years ago. I also was lucky enough to hear Perlman play it. Are you a pianist and a violinist?
