OK, this blog has nothing to do with violin. This holiday we climbed some Alpe Mountains of the Tour de France like Lance Armstrong with a single-holiday of bachelors between 30-48. Although there are differences between man and woman on the bike, some woman were faster with climbing. That woman to man are equal in violinplaying is the reason why man and woman compete in the same violin competitions. Ok, but this was no competition, but holiday. Here my arrival on the Alpe d’Huez from 5.05- 5.45 minutes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QM1kuGin5Y and here some photo's http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Album=X4CODJDU
Eveyrbody knows the Sonate's + Partita's of Bach and the Caprices of Paganini from conservatory and competitions, but what about the 8 Etudes / caprices of Wieniwski? :
Just like Hejre Kati of Jeno Hubay the Ballad of Cyprian Porumbescu (1853-1883) + the Csardas of Vittorio Monti (1868-1922) are big gypsy-hits . Every gypsy-orchestra plays them:
Here Jeno Hubay (the name of my violinblog here) (1858-1937) Scenes from Czardas #4 Hejre Kati with the score, his most popular piece:

I got the score of 2 of the 24 Capriccio's of Dutch composers. Janine Jansen plays Chiel Meijering and Joris van Rijn a caprice of Hans Koolmees:
In 2006 I heard the violin concerto in D minor (he wrote also another, but I think the orchestral score is lost, because I only found the [unpublished] solo part) in Amsterdam. They thought it was a world premiere recording, but a crtique a violinconcerto of van Bree was written in 1847 in Cecilia. In Amsterdam I found the score. A friend had made a recording of the audio from the radio:
Van Bree is more well known of his piece for 4 string quartets. 2 amateur string orchestra's play that piece, but I was not in 1 of the 4 string quartets:
Charles Auguste de Beriot (1802-1870) wrote 10 violin concerto's and was the pupil of Henri Vieuxtemps (1820-1881) in Brussel Belgium, who wrote 7 violin concerto's. Perhaps 2th rank pieces but nevertheless funny and on conservatory used as study violin concerto's. Except 6 and 10 all have been recorded on cd with orchestra. Here the 4th:
