Identify Orchestral Violin Piece used in the background
Greetings. The link:
In the video by Twoset Violin, from 0:10 to 0:22 of the video, which classical composition is used (the background orchestral music)? It is so familiar. Sounds like a part from violin concerto?
Note bene: I am NOT at all promoting the video, just eager to know the classical music. Thanks all!
It’s the opening of the Dvorak “American” string quartet, which is a famous viola solo in the quartet literature.
That quartet is part of what got me hooked on the viola, I love that passage!
I notice they've been posting videos much more frequently in recent months than they did in the past. That has to have a negative impact on quality.
Many of their new videos really are awful. You can't tell one from the next, and their commentary lacks any insight or humour. They have a few decent ones now and again, but their most memorable work seems to be behind them.
"By the end of ten years, I'd said pretty much everything I had come there to say. It's always better to leave the party early."
Paul, it is great to see another calvin and hobbes fan, and Watterson was a very shy person. And yes, it seems that theyre quality isnt as good as it used to be, and ive been a fan for about 3-4 years by now. sheesh
They do comedy on a narrow topic, and I imagine it's hard to continue to come up with original ideas. Their strength is actually when they broaden out to more serious interviews, explorations of topics, etc. Their Hilary Hahn interview is great, for instance, as is the episode where they try out high-end violins.
Yau Qi Herng, you didn't ask about that quote from the first movement of a D-major Stamitz viola concerto that he plays on the viola and repeats a little at about 4:18-30 (just after he plays the Dvorak again) - Is that because you already knew it?
