Sarah's Violin and Piano Recital

In September  I had a violin recital held in a local church. I played Preludium and Allegro by a famous composer named Kreisler. He was born on February 2, 1875 in Austria and he died January 29, 1962. He was one of the most famous violin masters of his time, and is regarded as one of the greatest violinist. He is known for his sweet tone and expressive phrasing. Preludium and Allegro was published in 1905, and it is a piece in two sections. The first section consists mostly of quarter notes and is melodic and slow. However, the second part is quick paced, and uplifting. I practiced many hours for this performance, as the fast part was very hard and required a lot of practice. I hope you enjoy listening.

After I played on the violin, it was again my turn to play on the piano. I played October ("Autumn Song") by Tchaikovsky and A complaint by Grechaninov. Tchaikovsky is a Russian composer of the late Romantic Period, and he was born May 7, 1840  and died November 6, 1893. His works are among the most popular in the classical music. October is a beautiful and very melodic piece that I really enjoyed learning and performing.  Grechaninov was a Russian composer who also composed during the romantic period. He was born on October 25, 1864 and died on January 3, 1956. He wrote many pieces for the piano, and a complaint was a very dramatic piece filled with many dynamics. These dynamics made the piece interesting to listen to. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Dear Sarah, I admire how you play two instruments so well.
    I 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,
    Grandma Tanya and Grandpa Eugene
