I met violin when I was young. I fall in love. It was not reciprocal - I never was able to play a decent scale. But my love survived.
Violin is ultra simple in concept: no moving pieces, no predefined notes. Yet, it offers infinite possibilities. My violin world is violin across boundaries: across music styles, geographies and times. Enjoy and feel free to suggest.
This video is 38 minutes long: too much for a post. But Tchaikovsky's concerto deserves it :) Violinist is Sayaka Shoji. I might prefer versions which are a bit more "violent", but this one is full of emotion. And well fimed too.
Two legends (Yehudi Menuhin, violin, 1916 - 1999, and Ravi Shankar, sitar, 1920 - 2012), met and played, in a famous "West meets East" recording. Dare dive into the timeless music and discover Tenderness.
