Tired of dull etudes?
There IS some great warm-up music out there. No joke. This is real.

Locatelli Caprice in D Major.

Enjoy.

(The piece can be played as an etude or simply for recreation.)

That's quite the workout I would imagine.

Hahhaha.  Uhm, no.

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

It would definitely take some practice. I really like it, and it does sound fun to play.

Maybe this is a case where the performer has to achieve the legendary 10,000 hours experience.

I'm working on it.

It sounds like fun playing. :) Something to work towards.

Sorry folks, I have to be honest.

Not what I'd listen to. Technically great I suppose but got bored at about 1 min 10 sec.

I suppose I'm a 'fiddle' player. Come to think of it, I rarely play with my shoes on. rofl

Besides, it would sound rather odd played by the campfire.

That one is generally considered to be one of the most difficult violin pieces to play, even more so than any of the Paganini Caprices.

 

Henryz Szeryng recorded that one many years ago on a 'Virtuoso Showpieces' album.

 

One of its major challenges is playing in the higher positions on the outer strings, fingering the outer strings while allowing an open string in between to vibrate freely.

 

I do have the full printed works of Locatelli's 24 Caprices. Some excellent works in there :)
