I was inspired after I heard Rimsy-Korsakov's "Sheherazade" on the radio. Enough said. It was lovely. I was probably around 5. I asked my parents for a violin but I had to start piano instead...:(
jk, I love piano, but I never play it anymore. I finally got my violin when I was 9.
And I distinctively remember when I was 13 and I heard Perlman's recording of the first movement of the Saint-Saens concerto. It was my first :O experience.
So what's your story?
