Any recordings you have done that could be described as Classical, post in here.
Includes pieces one would only loosely call 'Classical' as they depart somewhat from what the composer intended.

According to Wikipedia, Meditation is a symphonic intermezzo from the opera Thaïs by French composer Jules Massenet. The opera premiered in Paris on March 16, 1894. The piece is written for solo violin and orchestra.
I love playing this very moving piece but I find it technically quite challenging to reproduce a good solo violin sound.

Found quality of playing, interpretation and registration outstanding.
The left hand HARP arpeggios and right hand VIOLIN solos, harmony and chorus well suited to the piece.

Thank you

Hi Chuck

That was Brill. Particularly liked use of expression pedal Those slow pieces are often more difficult than fast pieces. Prompts me to submit something from Bruch.
