    The concerto is Kind of like the Beethoven, Its not hard to play but It is hard to convey Shostakovich's feeling, The concerto is really simple once you have a good set of fingerings and a solid will to practice. The Great thing about this concerto is that if...

    you rub another string while your playing it just adds to the emotion of recklessness and it sounds so much better

  • April 16, 2006 Absolutely wonderful and difficult

    Like all works by shostakovich, this concerto has that eerie and mysterious atmosphere which I find absolutely ingenious. Listening from the recording, this piece is really diffucult to play, especially the last movement, involving rapid glissandos and double stops. I may not have the technicality to play this, but it...

    will be fun just reading the music while listening to the recording.

  • August 27, 2005 not that technically difficult

    first off, this concerto isn't very technically hard as people think it is... i think the hardest part of this piece is being able to express what shostakovich wrote. it's so profound and perhaps in such a high level of emotion.. the emotion is.. more or less complicated...

    . you really need to research this piece to be able to put yourself in shostakovich's shoes and give a meaning to each and every note. so, if you're up for a musical challenge, go for it.

  • March 06, 2005 this piece just blew me away !!!

    This piece blew me away when I heard it. It is very difficult. but it would be worth the time and effort to learn this piece. It is one of the jewels of violin music.
