Join my virtual orchestra of players of all levels worldwide! We’re going to play the Autumn violin concerto from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons cycle

Hi! I'm Zlata

Classical violinist helping you overcome technical struggles and play with feeling by improving your bow technique.

Are you in for the virtual orchestra performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons Autumn violin concerto?

Here’s how it works:

  • Sign up right here to get all the resources and instructions (no strings attached: you are free to decide not to join if you change your mind)
  • Practice with the sheet music and backing track
  • Dress up if you want ;). I got my baroque wig and dress from Feestkleding 365 and warmly recommend this webshop to the Dutchies amongst you
  • Record yourself with the clicktrack in your headphones
  • Send me the video file (video link or WeTransfer)
  • I’ll put together a beautiful virtual orchestra performance and publish it on my YouTube channel

Playing level required: the second violin part is possible to play as a beginner violinist. You can leave out fast runs if you want. The first violin part requires third position and the solo part is for more advanced violin players.

Repertoire: Concerto No. 3 in F major, Op. 8, RV 293, “Autumn” from the “Four Seasons” cycle

Deadline: November 10th 2021

    Kan ik meedoen met mijn altviool of cello?

      Er is een altviool partij! De basso continuo heb ik al laten opnemen, dus een cello gaat helaas niet.

    Hi Zlata. I am someone who has owned a violin for many many years but for various reasons have not got passed a very basic skill level. Currently not doing much other than still hoping to one day become disciplined and motivated enough to get started and make some progress. Today I just wanted to say this is really nice of you to put this event together Well done. I hope you get plenty of people involved from all around the world and it is an enjoyable fun experience for everyone. Ross from Australia.

    What a fun concept! I’ve only been playing violin for about a year, and have been needing to get back to practicing steadily. I hope this will give me the necessary motivation to continue practicing daily. Needless to say I’ll be giving the violin II part a go.

    I will be playing the second part. This is exciting. It is hard to practice and stay motivated when you are self learning
    and don’t have recitals or concerts to play in.

      Indeed! I also need a goal to stay motivated.

    Signed up! I’ve loved playing the violin for most of my life, and I teach all of my children to play! I’m not a professional, but I’m always learning. Plan to practice the solo part and the first violin part, and decide which one I’d be less embarrassed to share 🙂 Thank you for starting this!

      How wonderful that you’re also teaching your children how to play. Happy to have you in!

    This is great – thank you for organising it. I took up the violin in lockdown 1, so I’ve been playing for 16 months and loving it. I’m going to attempt violin 1.
    I’ve never worked with a click track either! Exciting times!

    Hi Zlata! I’ve been hoping to come across a virtual orchestra like this for some time, but couldn’t find anything. So thank you for putting this together! I think I’ll try the first violin part 🙂

    Hi Zlata! I’ve had my violin for several years but never seem to get very far. Of course, being 75 may have a little to do with it. Maybe this virtual orchestra will give me the push I need to move on. I am going to try playing the 2nd violin part. But it seem that I’ve lost the backing track. How can I get it?
