    Did anyone listen to Classic FM's Hall of Fame 2006 countdown? I was sad enough to listen to every piece from 34 onwards...

    Personally I was shocked that Mendelssohn's violin concerto in E minor and Tchaikovsky's piano concerto 1 weren't even in the top 50!

    Things would be very different if I had to compile the list :p:

    lol. I LOVE the Mendelssohn violin concerto. Obviously. (:p:) I'm playing the 1st mvt atm, it's hard, and you can only achieve great stuff when practising continually, but it's still a lot of fun

    wow. I dream of ever getting my hands on a score of the Mendelssohn. It sounds so amazing I don't think I could ever do it any justice!

    Have you played any other concertos then?
    AFAIK I've only done Mozart 3rd in G and Haydn's in G....

    cheesy as an extra-matured Blue Stilton that has been left in a cupboard for a month. I love it too!

    We played it in our school during 6th form, and had another go last term on a 'fun' repertoire day at uni!

    Good effort, that's bloody difficult (I know, I've tried!)

    Does anyone else know the mozart piano concertos? I've been getting into them recently, bloody brilliant. I recommend no 23 (A major), 24 (C minor), and 20 (D minor) for starters if you don't.

    IF scores weren't so prohibitively expensive I would be trying :X I especially like the 23rd piano concerto by Mozart. It's so pretty!

    On an aside...does anyone take Trinity piano music exams? I'm trying to find out if I need to play the repeats Thanks!

    And to the person who recommended Segovia... is that a player or composer? (sorry for my ignorace)

    Cheers and sorry for this longwinded post!

    that would be me..
    segovia is a classic guitar player.

    surprising how little people know him, considering how much he has contributed to the modern classic guitar, such as finger-techniques and such. he gave concerts (like wow!), and raised the standard of classic guitar.. he is also the father of the modern classical guitar. (or thats what musicians says.. )

    he is definately my favourite guitarist.

    normally people composed pieces for him to play, but he also did some of his own, i think..

    u DEFINATELY have to listen to him, hes amazing, oh yeah, u can also try Sharon Isbin..

    Indeed. I really like number 20 and 23. 21 is great as well.
