    I am trying Klezmer - Freylekhs, Nign and Khosidl - and it's so wild and Bacchic, though I wish I could trill faster. Nothing's as fast and strong as it used to be, especially not my fingerwork. But it's a real change for me to let my hair down when I usually disgust Fiddle Guru by being so timid. Wey-hey-hey!

    Bach's cello suites (mainly the first one). They are fun to play at a quick tempo, especially the Courante.

    I saw a half-price book of Wedding Classics in our local music store. I've been playing Air on a G String, Schubert's Ave Maria, Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring & the Trumpet Voluntary - all great fun. This week I'm on to Pachelbel's Canon.

    Now, I've read a few posts on this forum sneering at this piece, though I like it fine. The trouble is, for a newbie returner-violinist like me, the increases in speed and the jumping across strings are not exactly a piece of cake.

    In fact..... H-E-E-E-E-L-P!!!

    Working on Bach's prelude from suite no. 3 bwv997 to perform tomorrow for a highly regarded classical guitarist.....in fact the one who's debut CD inspired me to start learning classical guitar when I was 8!!! I was interested in the guitar before that though, only really started learning it when I was 8.

    In addition to that, Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Fantasia op. 145, Villa-Lobos' Prelude no. 1, Houghton's Scacchi, Brouwer's Étude no. 16, Bach's Gavotte from suite no. 1 bwv995.

    Bow variations are always helpful. They will fix any problems.

    Currently working on Shostakovich Violin Concerto No.2

    I genuinely think that it's one of the most underrated concertos of all time.

    I am working through Edward Huws Jones' gorgeous 'Early Music Fiddler'. Currently, I'm on the 13th century French 'Estampie Royal'.

    Tristan Manoukian's arrangement of Bach's Sinfonia from 2nd Partita BWV 826. It's rather disheartening to watch this 16 year old play it so effortlessly, especially the fugue, which starts at 3:42.

    Just look at that concentration while he is playing the fugue, he goes into another "zone". Awesome video!

    I'm studying Vivaldi's "Concerto in do maggiore per mandolino, archi e cembalo"
    (I play mandolin by a few years)

    This is a nice interpretation

    There's some very nice music people are working on here.

    I'm working on Vivaldi's Summer, but I'm struggling with the double stops in the 3rd movement.
    Prelude to the E major Partita, Bach
    plus stuff for orchestra.
