What a GREAT Party theme!
This is going to be so much fun.
You do a wonderful Harry Potter, Ilona!
Did you watch all the movies? I loved them all.
Oooh... what about "Jaws" on the Cello?
There's sooo many good ones to choose from, I don't know where to begin!
Think I could spend a lifetime at this Party!
I'd like to do some multitrack videos for this party later, when I have more time and energy. (My musical attention is focused on a big virtual orchestra project right now.)
For the moment, here's the most famous viola section soli passage in all of film music: the beginning of the Jurassic Park theme. I played up to the moment the woodwinds take over the melody. I believe this is literally the only Hollywood feature film to have its main theme first introduced by the violas.
I absolutely love the Harry Potter! I have read all the books and watched all the movies so many times that I can’t count anymore. You can ask anything about Harry Potter and I would probably answer immediately. 😜
@AndrewH Thank you so much for joining my party! 🥳 That was really great! I love Jurassic Park too, have seen all the movies many times! Thank you also for that backstory about the viola part in this main theme, I didn’t know that.
@Mouse This was the first idea that popped into my mind, when I was thinking party themes. Funny that you had the same. I have two more ideas too, so let’s hope they are not same as yours. I’m still not going to start a new party for a while. 😊
Ps. Feel free to make as many videos as you want! The world is full of great movie themes!
Lovely job, @AndrewH You look so comfortable playing your viola and get such good sound from it. I am working on getting that song. I tend to want to bow it like a violin, and that is a no no. What bow do you use? Just curious.
I use a C.F. Iesta hybrid bow, which is now sold in the US under license as the JonPaul Fusion Silver. (It was still sold under the Iesta name in the US when I bought it 10 years ago.)
Well now, this is fun! So far I am enjoying them all! A great theme for a party.
Fine playing on some fine themes.
For my submission, I decided that while I be not great at the fiddle, I do have a certain talent for weird, and thus shall entertain with a minimal snippet from the movie that made people afraid to get in the water:
