Hannah's Piano and Violin Recital

In September, I had a music recital. I played two pieces on the piano and one long piece on the violin. My first piece that I played was called Sweet Dreams and composed by Tchaikovsky. This piece is pretty slow and is beautiful. Tchaikovsky is a Russian composer born on May 7, 1840. He is considered the most popular Russian composer in history. The style that he did was called Romance, and he wrote many beautiful melodies on different instruments including piano. His most famous works were Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.    Tchaikovsky died at the age of 53. My next piece that I played was called Sonata by Mozart. Mozart was born in Vienna on January 27, 1756, in Austria, Vienna. He was a composer of the Classical Era, and he created many operas, concerts, symphonies, and sonatas. He died at the age of 35.

For violin, I played Concerto No. 1 by Accolay. It was a very long piece and hard to learn by heart, so I had to practice a lot of hours. Accolay was a Belgian composer who composed during the romantic period. He is best known for his student concerto in A minor written for the violin and an orchestra. He was also a violin teacher, and violinist. This piece was so long that I got a little bit nervous and forgot what I was playing but I quickly relaxed and finished playing the piece. I hope you enjoy listening!

  2. Dear Hannah,
    Your progress is tremendous, and you are very confident and you work very hard.
    We admire how you play two instruments so well.
    We have been on your recital and enjoyed every moment of it. It's was much better than it's on the recording.
    We are very proud of you and hope you will continue to practice and we could enjoy free concerts for a long time.
    Love you,
