Go away programmers! I'm talking about music this time.

I like strings and here is a collection of some of my favorite pieces. If you know great string pieces please share.


Johann Sebastian Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 - Prelude
Performed here by Mstislav Rostropovich. This piece is sublime, Yo-Yo Ma also does a great rendition.



Antonio Vivaldi - Four Seasons - Winter - Allegro Non Molto

Peformed by the Berliner Philharmoniker, conducted by Herbert von Karajan Main with main violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter the youtube sound really doesn't do this one justice. Also see Vanessa Mae's performance of this piece for a good example of what to do with it.



Johannes Brahms Hungarian Dance No. 5

Performed here by Yehudi Menuhin.



Johann Sebastian Bach " Air
Julian Lloyd Webber performing August Wilhelmj's "Air on the G String" rearrangement of Bach's piece.


Ok, now I've gone and collected some of my favorite pieces and put the work in to find embeddable performances of it for you guys that do it justice.

If you recommend any, please try to find a good performance of it that we can enjoy.

Antonio Carlos Jobim - Corcovado

@Robert Gentel,
Alison Kraus and Union Station rely heavily upon the dobro, Ill see ifn I cant sniff out a representative piece.


Not a virtusitic piece but quite appropriate for the task at Virginia TEch. The piece written by Jay Unger, was used as an anthem for the PBS "Civil WAr"series

@Robert Gentel,
Saw/heard Almeida a few times.. usually at the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach.

I remember that one.. it builds. Or maybe the word is accelerates.

@Rockhead,
Loved those Rock, going to embed them so I don't have to go to a new window to listen:

Tommy Emmanuel - Angelina


Tommy Emmanuel - Guitar Boogie


I'd never heard him before, thanks!

Baden Powell - Samba Triste

This is a recent discovery for me, having first heard this piece off Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz's Jazz Samba album. Baden's version is sick, loving it!

@Robert Gentel,
Speaking of Baden here is his son Marcel Powell doing my favorite Jazz standard of all time:

'Round Midnight



Rock, I just play and pause the ones I want to start buffering. Once you hit play there's no real stop and they'll buffer in the background.

Vivaldi Lute Concerto in D Major, Largo (guitar transcription)

The first time I ever heard this music was on Sesame Street. It was the short where they slowly pan around a sunflower as the music plays, and as the music ends they pan back and show that its in a pot on a windowsill somewhere in Manhattan.

@Robert Gentel,
YoYo Ma's fab, Rostropovich exquisite, but for my money I'll go with Anner Bylsma when it comes to baroque cello.

Solo cello performances can make me cry at the very best of times, but Mr. Bylsma ... oy, I've dripped tears at his feet (literally) a few times. The last time he was in Toronto, I bought a ticket to each performance that had tickets available (and I already had a subscription to the series he was performing in).
