Pieces - What are you playing?

Play more than piano? Interested in a different instrument, including voice? Talk about it here.

Okay, I got jealous because this topic is in the Young Students section for piano only, so I thought, "Why not make one for other instruments?" There is so much wonderful music out there for other instruments!! So I'm just being curious... what are you learning now? What are some of your favorite other-instrument pieces?

Stranger on the Shore for clarinet - how predictable is THAT! But I love it.

Stranger on the Shore- I've never heard it before, but I bet it's great since it's hard to go wrong with clarinet! Will I check it out? Shore thing! Er- :p

It's by Acker Bilk, made famous (!?) by the clarinetist Artie Shaw. It's very sonorous, and quite easy to play.

Aha! I finally downloaded it! And recognized it as a song I've heard on the oldies station a million times! :;): Yessir, that is a pretty cool song. But as I said before, it's hard to go wrong with clarinet!

Right now on violin, I'm playing Mendelssohn's violin concerto (E Minor). If you have an oppurtunity to hear that, go for it!!!! It's one of my all-time favorite violin pieces!

Hey i'm playing a concerto too! Of course in this stage of the game you can hardly call it playing. Macdowell's second, in D minor.

Michael Angelo is a totally awesome guitarist and i've been learning his song No Boundaries which is too hard for me yet though. I would recommend that if you like guitar, download speed kills of kazaa or whatever program you prefer. This is a popular version of the No Boundaries song. I've also been learning some Symphony X on both guitar and piano. They are a progressive metal band with really good singing and difficult guitar, bass, keyboard and drums (yep, the whole lot). The Odyssey is their best song, which goes for 24 mins and has a cool orchestral section at the start.
