I have been practicing this piece. I absolutely love it! ❤️As I always do when I get something new to practice. My teacher has a wonderful ability to find me all the most beautiful pieces in the world. 🤩
Here is the first movement - largo.
I see that I still have to work with my intonation, I have played this mostly without this Youtube accompaniment so there is work to be done. This is how it goes today. I wish I could play this with a real pianist some day...
@Ilona That was wonderful--what a beautiful piece.
It is good to be able to play live with others. Of course, this is not always possible/practical, so making use of available technology (youtube, etc.,) for practice definitely has its merits.
Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
Thank you all so much for your kind words! ❤️
I'll post a video of the second movement a little later, it's still in progress...
I think this sonata was originally composed for violin, so if some of you want to try it, you can easily find it on IMSLP.
That's beautiful @Ilona ! nice interpretation, it's obvious that you're enjoying this.
And a big thank you, now I must try this on viola. Slow pieces (or movements) have my preference – partly because I'm incapable of playing fast, I admit – and this forum is always a good place to find ideas :--)
@wtw Yes, I’m sure this will sound really nice on viola!
Here is my practice video of the second movement too. It’s a lot faster and a lot harder because there is so much jumping back and forth, but it’s also a lot more fun! 😄 I really love both of these! 😍🤩
I LOVE watching you play! 🤗
This is such a beautiful piece - I love music in a minor key.
Both parts will sound wonderful when you can play them together!
Thank you very much, for sharing your progress!
🤔... now I want to learn this, too!
You'll probably think this is silly. Last week Kevin read that someone near us had a cello for sale and I got kind of excited, thinking maybe I could learn to play it! 🤗 Then, I realized I still have too much problem with my legs swelling and too much pain in my hips/back to sit in a chair long enough to practice! 🙁
🤭 I don't think I can play a cello while I'm reclined on my bed. (lol)
Thank you so much, Emily! ❤️❤️
Don’t say you couldn’t play cello, there’s always a way. Or what do you think of this picture where my daughter shows how to play cello in a more relaxed way laying on the floor. 🤣🤣
The idea of trying the cello is not silly at all! Just be careful if you decide to try it, you will never go back to the violin again. 🤭
