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:

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.

Variation on a theme contest (Ended)

It is about the time of the anniversary of the death of my beloved grandfather. As I think I have not done enough deeds for him before he passed away, I would honour him with a contest. I would like you to make a variation on this theme by Schumann. I gave you historical background on the piece in the description of the work.
