From the moment I started playing violin, I become interested with classical music. I were listening to many violin pieces – various concertos, miniatures, violin solo and many other. I have also started listening to other instruments and orchestral pieces and I fell with love with many of them. I thought that we may have a topic, where we would share some music that is inspiring for us and we really enjoy listening to it.
Last months I have discovered music of great pianist – Rachmaninoff. I have two of his pieces that I really adore – 1st movement of his 2nd piano concerto and prelude in g minor (which was also transcribed to violin). Here you have my favorite recordings of them.
Now I’m also starting a new piece on the violin. It was my teacher pick, but actually she actually chosen my favorite piece from classical period. I’m so happy with her choice. It’s 1st movement of Haydn Violin Concerto in G major.Right now I’m listening to many recordings of it and I’m a big fan of it. Didn’t expect to play it this year. It’s much easier than Komarowski Tarantella, that I am still working on. This piece has so much positive energy in it. It’s just like battery – you get really excited when you play it or listen to it
That’s things that I listen regularly right now. I’ve been also letting youtube to play me various playlists with various classical pieces. I have already went through Rimsky-Korsakov Schecheresade, Grieg Peer Gynt Suite and many other pieces that I didn’t know before.
And what you are listening now?
