Violin Concertos!!!!
 
Hey everyone..
I was wondering if anyone could give me the names of any violin concertos that are fast paced and sortta intense sounding. THX for the help!

My favorite Violin Concerto is Mozart's first in B flat. K 207 I think. Vivaldi's 1-6 are also quite good. Beethoven's String Quartets area all signifigantly better than any Violin Concertos IMO.

looking to expand my library some
 
Hi guys and gals

im looking to expand my classical library some but im looking for a style of classical music. im not sure of the name or if there really is one but i would describe it as being "mischievous" or "playful". by that i mean the instruments in the piece move up and down the scale in a playful manner. i suppose what i would consider a good example of this "style" would be Sergei Prokofiev "peter and the wolf" but im sure there are more. i have peter and the wolf but i want more departing from that exact type while staying in the style. thanks in advance for your help in this and i look forward to many more posts on this site

What about Edvard Grieg's music for Peer Gynt? :)

I find some of it playful at least. Here's Anitras Dans or Anitra's Dance in english.



The most famous piece (but less mischievous or playful?) is morning mood.

thats a perfect example what im referring to. thanks so much for the recommendation. i hope i can get more like that as well as more contemporary composers. as an aside, did he compose "the hall of the mountain king" as well?

Great! Glad you like it :)

And indeed he did, The Hall of the Mountain King is also one of the songs made for the play Peer Gynt, a play by famous dramatist Henrik Ibsen. The music really is lovely.

Contemporary classical music recommendation
 
This is a classical song recommendation for our member, pmusic, who recently asked for a music suggestion in a thread that was closed. I also thought I'd test out Freebase's new sticky, since he has gone to all this work of making sure there is a song recommendation sticky at the top of each section! ;)

My recommendation, pmusic, is to listen to classical music pieces representing the different time periods, so that you can better trace how composers were influenced by each other. Here is a recommendation for a classical piece from the (European) Contemporary Classical Period (1975–present):

Eric Ewazen (a modern composer from the United States): "Down a River of Time," Movement II (1999).

Eric Ewazen's music is subtle but beautiful, I feel. I would never have heard of him except our orchestra is playing his contemporary "Down a River of Time" concerto for oboe. Our oboe player said he feels the second movement is the saddest oboe piece of all time!!!

I don't know if this piece is the saddest ever, but I do feel it manages to sound contemporary yet still contain emotion, which I sometimes feel contemporary classical music lacks. I hope you'll enjoy it:
