Music From The Movie Together

July 25, 2004 at 02:48 AM · Hey thanks to everyone at for recommending this film. I really liked it. There is a piece of music in the movie I have heard before but I don't know what it is. It is played by the violinist and his first teacher (on piano) at their last lesson together. It sounds like Rachmaninoff. Can anyone tell me what it is? Thanks! Nick

For a full list of pieces played, goto

It's about halfway down.

Yesterday I found the soundtrack at Barnes and Noble and listened to it last night. I really love that piece, and also I discovered Conus and Vieuxtemps who I hadn't heard before, and the piece, "Sunrise over Tashkorgan" which sounds like Arabic or Greek music, with the use of hijaz mode and meter in 7. Does anyone know anything about the composer, Chen Gang?

Also, how often is that Conus concerto performed?

This is a great website. If it hadn't been for, I wouldn't have known about this great movie and I wouldn't have heard all this great music. Thanks!

Also, about the Conus, I've personally never heard it played. I only heard of it when my stand partner once mentioned that she was playing it.

August 2, 2004 at 02:03 AM · I think at least 3 people were working on the Conus this summer at Encore, and 1 of them performed it. It's an interesting piece.

August 3, 2004 at 03:30 AM · Cool website, thx. Brian, what is Encore?

August 3, 2004 at 05:26 PM · I've never heard of the Conus concert (never seen "together"). Is is difficult? What level?

August 6, 2004 at 07:07 PM · I looked in the ABRSM violin syllabus and found the Conus listed at the Performer's level together with Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, etc.

"Together" is an enjoyable movie, maybe a bit corny at the end, but any violinist should like to watch it.

August 12, 2004 at 06:44 PM · I was one of the people playing Conus at Encore. I think that... four of us in Lipsett's studio were working on it, and three of us performed it in studio class. If you were in Wood, you'll know me as the one that practiced Conus around 7 (and at the end of camp 5) in the morning.

Don't like the piece, though, I must say...
