Best Piece For Your Instrument?

Recommended Posts

So, what is your favorite musical repertoire for your principle instrument?

I play oboe, and I have to say, without a doubt, Ralph Vaughan Williams' Oboe Concerto

here are the three movements in order. Rondo Pastorale, Minuet and Mussette, and Scherzo

It's amazing!! and what I love a lot is that the peak (or what seems like a peak to me) in the third movement is pp. It's quiet but rich.

So tell me!

your instrument

you favorite repertoire for the instrument (feel free to post more than one)

I have never really mastered piano to concert level, but there are a couple of works I have learned to be proud off.

Recently I am active as a choral singer. Here are some of my favourite compositions we recorded:

Eric Whitacre: Cloudburst

Sergei Rachmaninov: Bogoroditse

Ambrož Čopi: Eno drevce - dedicated to us!

Hmmmm....

It's hard to find an amazing piece for trumpet. However, these are pretty good:

- All movements are really well done, I just love this one in particular.

- Short and sweet, gotta love Bernstein!

I like the stuff that most people don't play. There's nothing cooler in my opinion than introducing audiences to new music!

I play clarinet and I would have to say in terms of contemporary music I think John Corigliano's concerto is amazing but ridiculously hard. Here's a link to the

I really wanna play piano because it's very relaxing when I play this. I just knew few piano songs and this would really help me a lot to improve me in this kind of instrument.

For viola my favorite piece that I've worked on is Schubert's "Arpeggione" sonata in A minor. It was originally written for an instrument called the arpeggione, now obsolete, and later arranged for viola and cello. As far as works originally for viola, I love Schumann's Marchenbilder, which I've never played.

There are many great trombone pieces. I've always been partial to Guilmant's Morceau Symphonique, but even that isn't greatly idiomatic to the instrument. There's a lot worse out there, however. Like Rimsky-Korsakov's Trombone Concerto.

I am all about the Debussy Cello Sonata. Someday I'll have to find a pianist to play it with.

The Shostakovich sonata is lovely too, but I can't play it to save my life. One of these days...

Chopin's Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2 and Liszt's Transcendental Etude No. 10 are my personal favorites.

Although this is a piano concerto I absolutely love it's "Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini" :

 

This piece is for a strings, it's beautiful, Yiruma's "Flowers We Are" :

(there were also some good earlier pieces by e.g. bach, beethoven and cage, but they weren't technically written for the same instrument)
