What is your favourite violin concerto?

Happy new year everyone! 

Did you know, on this day, the German composer Johannes Brahms premiered his Violin Concerto in D major with Hungarian violinist, Joseph Joachim in 1897? This concerto which has been claimed by Polish violinist, Henryk Wieniawski as an "unplayable" work while Spanish violinist, Pablo Sarasate refused to play the work. Now it is one of the greatest violin concertos ever written and it is very famous today.

Here is a link to my favourite recording of this concerto played by Itzhak Perlman:

Help Needed!

I'm working on a masquerade themed show (first draft of opener is posted on my profile) and am looking for front ensemble and drumline writers! 

Listen to the opener, leave a comment and send me a message if you're interested in working on it with me.

New Show Concept - Would love some feedback

Hey all, I'm still new at writing and am in high school still but truly love the marching arts as a whole. I thought of a neat concept for a show with one of my friends and we would love some feedback on the first movement of the brass book. 

Here's the link to our score: https://musescore.com/user/25285951/scores/5911043

Let us know what you think and if you have any suggestions!

Struggling

So I want to learn how to play the song Into The Unknown from Frozen 2, and I found most of the notes and I'm trying my best to compose my own version of it, because I can't find a flute solo for it anywhere. There's a part where it goes "ah ah ah ah" in a really high pitched note, but I can't find or figure out what notes they are! So if you know what notes they are or you know a place where I can get the song in a flute solo version, please let me know.

What do you hope never changes?

Is there anything in life, that you hope it just stays the same?

I hope that the way we celebrate celebrations never changes. I mean I do not want to celebrate Christmas in twenty years with hologram trees, Amazon packed presents and eat roast chicken made by automation. I can also imagine in the future that we will not have that much gatherings anymore as everyone will just video call each other in their living rooms. And there will be kids receiving presents in the form of Fortnite battle passes. For me, it would be bizarre to think of such idea.
