    I've been playing the violin for more than 11 years 

    Found this amazing piece by Prokofiev: Sonata No.2 for violin and piano, originally written for flute

    Also open to Twoset discussion lol I got introduced to their videos by a friend!

    There was a Classical thread once upon a time but the OP either quit playing or got tired of updating.

    I don't know enough about it to discuss in detail although I do catch a fair bit on NPR stations as I drive in/out of town.

    The more I hear, the more I notice structure and phrasing.

    This popped up in my google feed today.

    https://amp.classicfm.com/composers/bernstein-l/teaches-mixolydian-mode-through-beatles-kinks-songs/

    Leonard Bernstein explains the popularity of the lowered 7th note by singing a bit of 'that barbaric song' You Really Got Me by the Kinks

    That one is a classic. Awesome - top hits.
    Try listening to La Campanella by Liszt.

    Berlioz's symphonie fantastique has the dies irae theme :) And the new world symphony is awesome as well! Loved the horns.

    depending on my mood i quite enjoy classics 

    sometimes enjoy rock/metal version tributes more then the original

    here is a sample from a legendary guitar player for you

    Edit:: Just found this while looking around on you tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8-T09qB6PI

    I'm an ex-piano player, wanted to know if you had any Satie pieces on violin? I loved his pieces for the simplicity and calming feeling they gave. Wondering if it could be re-created on violin!

    My two favorites are probably everyone's favorites: gymnopédie no. 1 and Gnossienne no. 1

    Try listening to La Campanella by Liszt.
    That song gives you a hatred for D#, and makes your fingers bleed by listening to it.

    My top five in no particular order are

    Hungarian rhapsody by Liszt.
    In the Hall of the mountain king by Grieg.
    Canon in D by Pachelbel.
    Rhapsody in blue by George Gershwin.
    The sorcerer's apprentice by Dukas.

    Also, I don't know whether you'd consider them classical but I really love Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin; it's just a really upbeat piece of piano, and I love The Liberty Bell March thanks to Monty Python, haha.

    Lemme put that next to fur Elise, vivaldi's summer first movement, and flight of the bumblebee along the most played songs on classical.

    No, you're right, it's well too overplayed. It's become pop. Same goes for Hans Zimmer's theme to True Romance. Ruined by its own popularity.

    Yeah, funny I can't name any other piece by Pachelbel. 

    Though there are people who are all for 'YOU ALL I BETTER HAVE THIS PLAYED AT MY WEDDING/FUNERAL OR ELSE' and I don't wanna offend anyone ayyyyy
