Climbing Alpe mountains Alpe d'Huez, Croix de Fer, Glandon

September 29, 2010 15:01

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 and here some photo's

Bree, Johannes B. van violin concerto in D minor unpublished

September 9, 2010 01:45

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violin concerto in D minor (he wrote also another, but I think the orchestral score is lost, because I only found the [unpublished] solo part) in Amsterdam.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:

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:
