Has anyone tried playing Eine Kleine Nachtmusik First movement by Mozart? I found the 2nd Violin sheet music in my folder full other sheet music that I have collected from all those years ago. Its one of my favorites and I would like to some day be able to play it well.

Thank you for the post, DL. Enjoyed very much the sound and animation of that strings group. It's good to have high aspirations. I have to admit that right now I would be happy if I could play fluently the easy version of Danny Boy in EbM.  When you think of it, all of those musicians were once where we are in experience, so there is hope.

I like the following quote by Pablo de Sarasate:  For 37 years I've practiced 14 hours a day, and now they call me a genius.

This is my favorite tune to whistle!

Maybe someday I can play it on violin as well...

I like to think of this web-site in a couple of years when all us beginners are more experienced and playing together in one of FM's projects. It's going to sound awesome!!

But yes, I think this is a great choice for the next one, as long as there are some simple newbie parts.

Beautiful piece to hear and watch.

In reading through the responses, a question came to my mind for which I can't find a "Poll"..... "How long have you been playing, cumulatively?"  Before reading this thread, I had no idea there were so many people on the site who would consider themselves to be "newbies" (obviously to varying degrees).

Wouldn't this be an interesting topic for a poll???  [again, I did search for a poll of this topic and found none]

Yes, I do the open D's just until I feel warmed up enough to try the fingering. I still get flummoxed by the switch to the A string towards the end.dazed [wishes there was a one-string part to this project] When I get too frustrated I stop and work on Ode to Joy. I only work on which finger on what string for now. I hope to progress soon to getting the finger in the proper spot on the proper string soon crossedfingersbut for now I settle for "close enough"

Exactly the same prob here! It seems to sound nothing like FM's training video, and part 4 is even worse! Think this FMajor scale is gonna kill me lol

Ah yes!  They're all in the "attack" position, sitting on the edge of the chair! LOL  

I remember years ago, while playing trumpet with the local community orchestra, one of the violinist was so into a piece we were playing, she fell forward out of her seat!  But you know what??  She didn't miss a beat!  She finished the piece on one knee!!  

What could have been a disastrous, demoralizing moment turned into one of her greatest triumphs!  Plus, it looked so cool!  Rockstar like! :D

I remember listening to this in the movie Amadeus and thinking, ''omg!that's mozart!''

it's funny how tunes like this are often heard in tv commercials or shows as background ''jingles'' and they always sound so familiar but you can't remember the composer...

i feel it's a relatively simple piece-at least compared to other violin works of mozart.Can't speak though before i've actually tried it myself :) but it would make for an awesome fiddlerman project!
