  • February 10, 2009 Hauntingly Beautiful Piece for Violin

    Really a very melodic piece for violin that captivates the listener from the moment the soloist begins to perform.

    I enjoy playing this piece; it has the feeling of the orchestra version all narrowed down to two instruments.

    This piece is absolutely beautiful. The first half of it is slow and pretty, and also relatively easy. The second half is faster and consequently more difficult to play. If you love romantic music, this is the piece for you. The only thing you have to worry about is bow...

    control. You must be able to manipulate exactly how much bow and how much pressure you use to play this piece well. Also, this is by far the best edition if you want the sheet music.
