Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tuae, Jesus.
Ave Maria

Ave Maria
Mater Dei
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus
Ora pro nobis
Ora, ora pro nobis peccatoribus
Nunc et in hora mortis
Et in hora mortis nostrae
Et in hora mortis nostrae
Et in hora mortis nostrae
Ave Maria

    Thank you for your personal sheet music Zlata, from the Ave Maria part.

    How I would love to have your personal sheet music of Schindlers list! You made a video of it already and I was moved to tears! I love to learn that one myself. Please make it possible for me Zlata! If you can. I love you all very, véry, very much.
    Peace from Yvonne Berkemeijer.

      Thanks, Yvonne, how special to have moved you so much with the Schindler’s list! Unfortunately due to copyright I’m not allowed to share the sheet music for that one, but I’ll make a tutorial video in the future.

  2. Mary Ann Montgomery

    That was beautiful, Zlata! Thank you for sharing the video and the sheet music.
    I will be traveling (by bike) in the Netherlands in April and would love to visit your studio. If possible, could you send the studio address to me by my email address listed below? Dank je wel!

    Hi Zlata! I love this version of Ave Maria. On December 18, 2018 I played in my very first recital……ever! (I’m 62 years old) This is the song I chose to play. My fingering’s were slightly different and I played a harmonic on the A string instead of the high A. My violin teacher thought I did a good job. I felt like I could have played better, but overall I had several things to feel good about. I enjoyed this video very much. Thank you!

  4. Lydia Mandrikin

    Hi Zlata, this is a beautiful piece and I enjoyed your playing immensely! The only suggestion I have is for the piano to be slightly softer. At times, the piano was louder than the violin and I think it should be the other way around since the violin is playing the melody. Thank you for sharing, I really loved listening!

    • Violinist Zlata Brouwer

      Thanks for your comment, Lydia, we’ll certainly improve the recordings in the future!

    Hi Zlata
    Thanks for this help and nicely done played. Handel’s Celebre Largo would be nice to hear by you and Mari.

    Oh. Very nice dee. Unfortunately I have not played Bach but I heard some music compose by Bach. Any way it’s beautiful. Thanks. Again thanks to choose me for chairing the music.
