Aloha everyone,

I stumbled across a Telemann piece, It's titled "Four Concertos for four Violins", and the beginning part (Largo) seems to be fairly simple.  Of course, looks can be deceiving :D  Anyway, as it has four violin parts, my suggestion is that, should anyone desire to do so, we do the Largo part (the first part) as a project.  I've attached the complete score (it has all four violin parts) and this link to its YouTube video.   Let me know what y'all think.  

One thing to note is that there are some trills played by the musicians that are not noted in the score.  I don't know if they've simply been added, or are intentionally missing from the score.  Either say, should we want to include those trills, I'll see if I can find another score that includes them.

Of course, if no one wants to take on this project, I'll understand :D

I checked it out.  It turns out I can play the first 4 bars of the first violin part perfectly, after that it goes downhill quickly. b-slap

It is a new year and time to seriously pick up the violin again. If there is still interest in this, I'm in. I need some baroque back in my life.

I've looked at the sheet music but haven't attempted it yet, sorry, I didn't see this project until tonight.  

I'm going to have a go at it tomorrow. Even if the projects not going ahead the music looks fun.

I wish there was a click track, I don't have a metronome & would probably end up out of time/ play too fast or slow.

The sheet music that you attached @iBud is in a different key to the youtube video... which I guess isn't too much of a problem, it would have been good to play along with the video though.

I might see if I can find another version on youtube, unless someone beats me to it. ;)

Here is a video in the correct key

The end of the first movement is a little different though, otherwise it looks good. I've played through the parts along with it and it seems to be the same. :)

It's a beautiful piece but from my experience, it will be too difficult for the majority of the players on our forum.

I'm still very supportive of the project though :)

The trills BTW iBud, are normal for baroque music. They don't need to be written in to be played.

Aloha @Fiddlerman,

I was thinking only the Largo part of Concerto No. 1, which doesn't appear to be too difficult.  The other parts are too difficult, you're right.  

As for the trills, if they aren't written into the score, we would need to communicate where we would like to play them, and which ornament, specifically, we would want in that spot.  I've head pianists play Bach's inventions, where they add multiple ornaments and, in one case, change the left hand from eight notes in groups of four to groups of three over the same half note time interval, so you're playing four notes per half note in the right hand, and three notes per half note in the left hand.  That's pretty difficult to do, but baroque is where it's at, at least for ornamentation.  That's one reason I love to play it on my Kronos.  That, and all the various instruments the Kronos offers.  There's nothing like Invention No. 14 with a full pipe organ sound or Invention No. 8 with a double harpsichord sound.cool
