Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and, while I have played violin/viola since I was 6 (I'm now 17), I have played mostly because my parents forced me to. However, as of this year, I have grown to LOVE classical music (mostly Romantic Era, Impressionist, and some Modern/Post-Modern). The piece that started all of this for me was the Saint Saens Cello Concerto, which we played in our high school orchestra to accompany some celloist from the Little Rock Orchestra.
I wish I could play this piece but I play viola. Does anyone know of any viola transcription for this concerto (btw, I'm starting to regret playing viola because while I get great concertos like the Walton Concerto and sweet sonatas, I don't get to play these awesome, new concertos that I am listening to like the Mendelssohn Concerto, Brahms Concerto, Tchaikovsky Concerto - they're all amazing!)
p.s. What song started the passion for classical music for you guys?
lmk thx and nice to meet you all!
