I was recently asked to recommend a fill-in soloist when someone backed out of performing Vivaldi's Winter with a local symphony (not the one I play with, the one in the next town over). After naming a couple people I thought knew the part and had performed it before, I also mentioned that I could probably learn it myself. And now I'm soloing next month! On violin! (Anyone want to visit Ocala, FL on November 17?) Luckily it's an easy little instrument, I'm used to something much more difficult... In preparation, I've started listening to it a bunch. Tell me your favorite recordings. I've been listening to: 1. Standage/Pinnock with The English Concert 2. Shaham with Orpheus 3. Huggett/Kraemer with Raglan Baroque 4. Mackintosh/Hogwood with Academy of Ancient Music I'll update more as I practice.
I need to learn Vivaldi's Spring very quickly before this Saturday for a concert. I'm playing Violin 1, and right now the 32nd note section in the first movement is really hard for me. I get lost counting and when to change notes, and during the 2 scales my fingers aren't fast enough to hit all the notes. Can somebody help me with this problem?
