Ryan Schlimme

My name is Ryan Schlimme, originally from Los Angeles, CA and living in Dallas, TX. I am 14 years old in 9th grade and I have been playing since 2010.

I currently play in my high school's Chamber Orchestra as a freshman. I play on a 1713 Stradivarius Model violin made by Wayne Burak with an A. Caravalho Brazilian pernambuco bow. I enjoy spending time working on my instrument to make it even better and playing music of course!

I have been learning for a while and have taught myself some too. My favorite composers are Mozart (definitely), Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Bach, and Rossini. My repertoire mostly consists of Mozart violin concertos and sonatas, but I have been learning a few overtures and string orchestra compositions.

My favorite concertos are Mozart 3, Mozart 5, Bach 1, Bach 3, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Mendellsohn E Minor, Bruch G Minor, Haydn 1, Locatelli 3, and de Beriot 7 to name a few. My favorite operas are Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Die Entfurhung aus dem Serail, The Barber of Seville, Il Signor Bruschino, Rigoletto, Il Trovatore, and La Scala di Seta. My favorite symphonies are Mozart 40, Mozart 41, Mozart 25, Mozart 39, Berlioz Fantastique Beethoven 9, and Beethoven 5. Finally, my all time favorite composition is Mozart's Requiem in D Minor.
