Inane short violinist poems
Depend on Leclair
To clear the air
Will just make me fumio.
When you play Suzuki,
You’re rewarded with a cookie.
Could really move the bow
You won’t find Hubay on ebay.
Don’t mess with Locatelli,
Or your fingers will turn to jelly.
Drdla was quite a fiddl’a.
The legacy of Auer
Gets better by the hour.
I’ve got the hot’s for Mazas.
I can’t play Dont,
Not even when I want.
De Beriot sounds better in stereo.
The music of Vieuxtemps
Should be declared against the law.
Treat your thirst to a coda,
Try a Vasa Prihoda soda.
If we pronounce “Ysaye” on any given day,
You’ll say “Eee-sigh,” and I’ll say “EEe-zay.”
Start Carl Flesch in the creche.
From v.com Laurie Niles doesn't quite make piles.
Changing it up a little... I was listening to a recording of Heifetz playing Mendelssohn, and I thought I'd try to play along. The following poem ensued:
short violinist's poem or a short poem? The above is far from Haiku!
I can do a Haiku too:
with its Bruch Treaty?
Although a violinist I am neither particularly short nor inane,
I don't consider this inane, in fact when Lydian mode first went into my ear, it was a major event for me. so here's an English haiku I wrote about that event.
Gabriel, if Limerick is above all poems, how is it that I have only found one tune definitely by a classical composer and one hymn tune attributed to a minor classical composer, to which a limerick can be sung?
There is quite a good violinist poem in the literature, but it's not that short: http://www.guntheranderson.com/v/data/theirish.htm
John, as an erstwhile Benny Hill fan, I need to warn you that rhymes ending with "piles" can be interpreted differently.
Neither Larry's art nor Curly's art, it must be Mozart.
Larry was a violinist, you know,
Paul, I didn't know that Ashley Mote was into any sort of art, but I do know he didn't get away with just a Fine.
A violin expert's my role.
