I really wish I could play my viola has amazing as I dream and hear. I have several awesome, and incredibly talented violinists who are the sweetest friends. They're absolutely amazing! Sometimes when they practice, I stop to watch in awe. I know that with practice I'll become better, but never as amazing as they are. They'll always have that extra time of practice that I didn't. But as much as I'm jealous, I'm respectful. I love you all.
In Orchestra, we're playing a piece called Ashokan Farewell from a Civil War documentary. The viola part is boring and doesn't even sound nice. And like always, the violins get the best part, but it sounds so beautiful, I can't be angry. It's so.............amazing. I can't describe it! Normally I would find a poem or peice of work to fit a song, but this one is just one so.............amazing!!!! I have to play to violin part when I can, because this songs just strikes something really deep inside me!
I found only two great videos of people playing the Ashokan Farwell:
A pair of siblings playing in a duet. The brother as the viola (oh yeah!) and the sister as the violin
A Senior Orchestra (you can tell, it's so good!)
I HAVE MOVED!
