  • December 21, 2008 some nice light music that's fun to play

    These two pieces, the Nocturne "Parting" and the Mazurka are both fun pieces to play. The Nocturne sure is emotional. Heck, I guess most relationships are. Especially when they come to an end. It sure takes some shifting to some high positions on the D string, and a few optional...

    double stops make it challenging. The Mazurka's tempo marking is "Lamentable" but i guess it shows how life keeps moving even after an emotional parting. It's a moving and lively little Dance. The player certainly can't be gripping the viola to tightly if they want to play this piece.
