The Russian composer Sergei Tanayev (1856-1915) wrote his Suite de concert opus 28 for violin + orchestra 1) Praeludium: Grave 2) Gavotte: Allegro moderato 3) Märchen: Andantino 4) Tema con variazione 5) Tarantella: Presto:
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) wrote 4 violin concerto's. The 2th is lost. Here the 1st + 4th form the Hoboken catalogue:
I was on a chamber music evening of an orchestra. I learned how to resolve 3 chamber music problems concerning rhythm, how to turn pages when you have not enough time for that and what to do when somesone of your trio has a concert at the same time somewhere else:
Earlier I made a video of the violin concerto of the Russian composer Anton Arensky (1861-1906) with the score of the soloist (hereunder) This weekend I played it twice with amateurorchestra. Which of the 2 versions you prefer? My Youtubechannel was selected for longer video's than 15 minutes, so 2 times the whole concerto of 20 minutes+ applause:
Amateurviolinist Matthijs Meltzer plays Antonio Bazzini Rondo de Lutins during a chambermidday of an amateurorchestra. He asked me to place it on Youtube:
Earlier I uploaded the 2th violin concerto "Concerto Militaire" of the Polish composer Karol Józef Lipinski (1790-1861). Now his 1th and 3th violin concerto and a Caprice-Paganini lookalike Impromptu.1 I get associations with Paganini Caprice 6. The reactions on the 3th vc and the Impromptu were enthousiastic. Someone in Mexico started to practice the Impromptu.
Earlier I made movies with score for the violin concerto's Norwegian Fantasy + Concerto Russe op.29, now for the often played an popular (I think op.29 is better) op.21 Symphonie Espagnole and opus 20, quite unknown. Lalo wrote 4 violin concerto's, just like Bruch (1,2,3+ Scottisch Fantasy=4)
I played last weekend the double violin concerto of Bach with Lisanne Soeterbroek + Jospeh Puglia. They stood between the choir and the orchestra, with only Bach on the programm, so everybody could see them (except for my camera, because now they were too far away to get them sharp):
