Is this website only for violinists?

May 29, 2012 02:20

I was just wondering why people only discuss violin and viola stuff. Is it because this is VIOLINIST - dot com -, or just because people here are so obsessed with the violin that there's no time to talk about other stuff? :P

I mean, there are many, many great compositions/transpositions (is that a word?) for cello, for example the Arpeggione sonata (kinda ironic since it's an arpeggione sonata :P) and the Dvorak concerto, from the top of my head. The Bach solo sonates are also very popular but I haven't really listened to them.. And it's not like us violinists only listen to violinists' stuff. I'm kinda interested in your opinions of non-violin/viola music. Oh, I also really liked Mozart's flute/harp concerto and his Oboe concerto, hmm, maybe I should listen to them again..

PS: 'Do you wish to allow readers to submit public comments to your blogs?' I chose yes, does that mean non-readers can also comment? I think not but I just want to be sure

PSS: Forgive me, I'm new, so I guessed it was okay to make such a long entry = D
