The best musical event I've probably been to is a ballet at the Royal Opera House, where they performed Daphne et Chloe by Ravel, Prelude de L'apres Midi D'un faune by Debussy and Les Nos by Stravinsky.
I should really go to concerts more. It's just a shame that I'm the only person in my family who has any interest in classical music.
As for performing, I'm performing Rimsky-Korsakov's 1st (and only) Piano Concerto tomorrow with my school orchestra - I'm so damn worried!
Yay, symphony of a thousand - is it CBSO?
Just thought I'd drop in this convo! I'm 16 and adore my music. I play violin and viola and am working on my grade 8. I also play trumpet to grade 4 and am working on piano grade 6!
Where I live we have loads of orchestras. I currently play in Beechfield Youth Orchestra, William Appleby Chamber Orchestra, Danum Strings, The Boyce Chamber Orchestra, Danum Quartet, Doncaster Schools' Symphonic Orchestra, Sheffield Youth Orchestra, Sheffield Symphony and Electric Baroque (my own group with baroque sonatas played on electric violin with cello de gamba). I also sing in the School Choir and Doncaster Minster Church Choir.
I am planning on taking AS music next year along with Maths, Chemistry, Physics, History, English Literature and General Studies!
Does anyone here have a string fave? Whats kind of music do you preffer? I must say I av a passion for something Russian or Eastern European like Tchaikovsky, Rismsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich, Mussogorsky, Mahler being amongst my faves!
