Top Ten Violin Works
Whenever someone asks Timothy Russell, Conductor Emeritus of ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, about his favorite composer or piece of music, he has a saying he likes to pull out. ”Whatever I’m conducting at the moment.”
That is a simple answer to a complex question – but an honest one – for anyone in the music business. Even when asked for a top ten list, it’s difficult. Once you get to ten, the “what abouts” begin. What about Beethoven’s symphonies? What about Mozart’s violin concertos? See what I mean?
It is with that in mind that I offer one publication’s take on the top ten violin works. A subjective list, yes, but one which gets the juices flowing and makes for great discussion. Let me know YOUR favorites!
