  • 2008-11-25 00:00:00.0 good edition

    The Schirmer edition of Zigeunerweisen is laid out nicely, only four pages, and the bowings are straightforward and not weird. The fingerings in this edition are quite good - I had to change far fewer than I thought I would. I wouldn't bother learning this piece unless you planned to...

    memorize it though!

    This is a necessity for any advanced, performer level student. It's satisfying to play, and amazing to listen to.

  • 2007-07-09 00:00:00.0 A piece for a true virtuoso

    A well-renowned but maddening piece; it will require a full repertoire of skills. Felt the fingering and bowing could be better but was mostly satisfied with the music itself. Definitely not a piece for beginners.

    Zigeunerweisen is arguably the best of the virtuosic violin reportoire. As a violinst of five years, my greatest goal is to someday play this piece. Sarasate's poignant tones really bring the instrument to life. Perhaps in ten or twenty years , I might be able to actually play it. To...

    the reviewer below me: Are you sure you are talking about Zigeunerweisen? It is one of the most difficult pieces for classical violin, up there with the Tchaikovsky and Brahms concertos, and I doubt anyone with just nine months of experience would be able to play it. Perhaps you are talking about "Souvenir de Sarasate", a beginner piece by William Potstock which imitates the themes of the Gypsy Air.
