    Rossini Ouverture - Il Barbiere di Siviglia

    It's bringing back a lot of memories from being in Vienna and seeing this opera performed live! :love:

    fyi: he's playing a 4-valve flugelhorn here, not a trumpet as suggested in the title of the movie

    Boccherini's Musica notturna delle strade di Madrid, Mvt. 5.

    I'm a complete classical noob, can anyone recommend other Boccherini pieces or other composers who work in a similar vein?


    Link to video.

    Oh, and Vivaldi's Concerto for Four Violins in B-minor, Mvt. 3

    The title says it all. This is a fairly simple peice, but under that hands of a master here, it is elevated to a higher level.

    I kind of buried it between two videos above, but I had a question for you all:

    I'm a complete classical noob, can anyone recommend pieces similar to Boccherini's Musica notturna delle strade di Madrid or Vivaldi's Concerto for Four Violins in B-minor, or other composers who work in a similar vein?

    Thanks :)

    I don't really have any great idea, but similar composers that you might want to check out include Paganini, Tartini and Corelli.

    I love how he gets the bass notes to sustain through (and I love how we strikes them at the beginning with his right hand).
